Coming Soon: Fair Trade Oriental Rug Even
Over 300 Oriental rugs in sizes 2'x3' to 10'x14' will be available in the atrium in Victoria Crossing West. All rugs are made by adult men and women in Pakistan exclusively for Ten Thousand Villages. Fair trade assures a well-made, heirloom-quality rug for our customers and a fair, sustainable income for the weavers.
Also, join us for our seminar-- Introduction to Oriental Rugs -- on Thursday, September 11 at 7pm. You'll learn from a rug expert all about how oriental rugs are made, from dyeing the wool to tying the fringes, as well as how fair trade makes a difference in the lives of artisans.
