Fair Trade Rug Event!
June 9, 2023 - June 18, 2023
Bunyaad rugs are coming back to Victoria! You may remember them from the Ten Thousand Villages stores. Bunyaad has been working with artisans in Pakistan since 1982 to preserve the rich cultural heritage of traditional rug-making. Bunyaad works with over 850 families. Artisans are assured a fair wage for their labour, allowing them to focus on creativity and quality rather than speed and expense. The rugs are made with locally sourced wool, cotton and silk and are naturally hand dyed. As a result these high quality rugs are made to withstand everything from coffee and wine spills to muddy feet. We will have rugs from 2X3 to 9X12, runners and round.
Whether you are in the market for a rug or not, these beautiful pieces of art are worth seeing in person!
