GoodWeave

I have spent the last 25 years working in the interiors sector – specialising in marketing. Following a career working for UK and global corporations in the carpet, ceramic, cosmetic and stationery sectors, I established a consultancy Dixon Handley Marketing. In 2004, I joined the charity GoodWeave UK as a Board Member (2004 - 2008) before assuming responsibility for marketing and communications. Working with GoodWeave has opened my eyes to the beauty of handmade rugs but also the gross injustices for many who produce them. It’s a mismatch which is indefensible and one which can be eradicated with all our help.
