Rug Event

Fair Trade Rugs are Coming Back to Rochester! 


This year our 8th Annual Rug Event
 will be 5 days!

October 5-9, 2017

The always popular Fair Trade Oriental Rug Event returns to the Rochester One World Goods store on October 6-10. For 5 days only, more than 300 luxurious hand-knotted Bunyaad rugs will be on display and available for purchase at this unique annual event.

From intricate florals to hand-spun natural dye wool tribals, every Bunyaad rug has been designed and hand-knotted by highly skilled and fairly paid adults.

"When artisans know they are paid for every knot they tie, they are empowered to focus on the fine details of intricate rugs that will last for generations,” says Yousaf Chaman, Bunyaad Director. Bunyaad works with over 850 families throughout 100 villages in Pakistan.

An Introduction to Oriental Rugs seminar will be held at the Rochester store on Thursday, October 5 at 6:30 p.m. The one-hour seminar is ideal for anyone considering an Oriental rug purchase or who would like to learn more about the art of Oriental rug making, rug care and even room design. Refreshments will be served and admission is free. Reservations are strongly encouraged. Please call us at 387.0070.
