Linie Design believe that all children should be protected from economic exploitation. Their vision is for children to be educated and not exposed to anything which can harm their physical, mental, spiritual, moral or social development. Linie Design is a member of Care & Fair, a worldwide industry initiative of the European carpet trade.

Our top pick for 2018 is the Graphic rug. Available in four stunning colours this is the statement piece of the season.
As a sub branch of Care & Fair, the Woman Empowerment Program was created in 2002 to allow Mothers and elder sisters of schoolchildren the opportunity to acquire basic knowledge in reading, math and writing. In addition they are taught in sewing and stitching so that they can produce items to sell them at the market or use them for their own families. Purchasing any Linie Design rug directly helps funding for the Care & Fair organisation.
