Event Information:
Join Us… …for our Annual Oriental Rug Event, featuring over 300 handknotted rugs all made by fairly paid adults, from 2'x3's to 10'x14's. Since our store is not large enough to carry these rugs year round, we host this special event once a year to bring these high quality, fairly traded handknotted rugs to our community from the Bunyaad Rug Room at Ten Thousand Villages, Ephrata, Pennsylvania. It's an event not to miss as these fairly traded rugs represent a win-win situation for all. Fair Trade Difference Here at Ten Thousand Villages we believe in a global economy that is sustainable and fair to everyone involved. This means providing well-made, quality products for our customers and a fair, sustainable income for our artisans. When you purchase a rug created through our artisan group Bunyaad, you not only acquire a beautiful piece of functional art, you also support lives, culture and education in Pakistan.
