Fair Trade Rug Event by Ten Thousand Villages State College

Ten Thousand Villages is hosting experts from the Bunyaad Rug Room in Ephrata PA, along with several hundred hand-knotted heirloom-quality Tribal, Bokhara, and Persian rugs. From 2” x 3” to 10” x 14”. All rugs are made by fairly paid adults.
Learn from the experts how Bunyaad supports 850 artisan families in roughly 100 villages in Pakistan by paying a “fair” wage to artisan families. Reliable and consistent payments foster unprecedented
financial planning capacity. Artisans can focus on doing quality work with the knowledge that they have the security of a fair income. Bunyaad both builds and supports school to further the education of village children and empowers women through financial independence.
