Join Ten Thousand Villages…
…for their Annual Oriental Rug Event, featuring over 300 handknotted rugs all made by fairly paid adults, from 2'x3's to 10'x14's. Since the store is not large enough to carry these rugs year round, they host this special event once a year to bring these high quality, fairly traded handknotted rugs to our community from the Bunyaad Rug Room.
Ten Thousand Villages is part of a worldwide movement striving to practice fair trade. We are one of over 300 IFAT members in 70 countries. IFAT members agree that fair trade is an alternative approach to conventional international trade. It is a trading partnership aimed at sustainable development for excluded and disadvantaged producers. It seeks to do this by providing better trading conditions, by raising awareness and by campaigning.
