"Custom Cool is proud to work with GoodWeave to improve the lives of 'carpet kids'--transitioning them from loom to classroom and certifying every single one of our rugs to be child-labor-free," said Eliza Gatfield , Custom Cool's CEO and design director.

Raffle tickets are $25 each, five for $100, 10 for $200, 25 for $500, 50 for $1,000 or 125 for $2,500.

The drawing will be held in Custom Cool's showroom here on Aug. 25, and entrants need not be present to win.

The 8-by-10 wool, nettle and silk rug Summer Ikat design is handknotted in Nepal and retails for more than $7,000.
