Rug Event Seminar & Reception

September 25, 2014


Spend an evening learning more about how Oriental rugs are made, from dyeing the wool to tying the fringes and hear how fair trade works to produce high quality while still offering competitive prices for the North American consumer. Then take time to shop the 300 hand-knot rugs we've brought in for our event and even get the chance to take up to 4 styles home on loan to see what suits your style best!

R.S.V.P. to 216-575-1058 for this special event!

Ten Thousand Villages Of Cleveland

About Us

About Ten Thousand Villages in Cleveland, OH

Ten Thousand Villages in Cleveland, OH, is a fair trade retailer of artisan-crafted home decor, personal accessories and gift items from across the globe. Featuring products from more than 130 artisan groups in some 38 countries, we are part of a network of over 390 retail outlets throughout the United States selling Ten Thousand Villages products.

As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than 60 years cultivating trading relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to distinctive handcrafted items. We seek to establish long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans are under- or unemployed, and in which they lack other opportunities for income. A founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), Ten Thousand Villages sees fair trade as an alternative approach to conventional international trade.

Did you know that this year Cleveland Heights Ten Thousand Villages won both "Best Place to Buy a Gift" and "Best Cleveland Heights Business" by Future Heights magazine??? Keep that in mind while you're doing your Holiday shopping this year and see what we're all about!!!
