At each market, I am seeing more mothers working and parenting at the same time. World Market Center has the mothering room, wish they would promote it more. A buyer who has to be a parent at a trade show are here in both roles not by choice but because of reality. Support them.
This lovely rug is handmade in India of 100% linen Soumach. It comes in a 6'x9' and all custom sizes are available.
On the eve of World Day Against Child Labour (June 12, 2013), Toronto-based fair trade design firm Creative Matters announced that it will celebrate its 25th anniversary year by mounting The Art Day Project to “celebrate and demystify the art of rug design and fair trade weaving.” Creative Matters designers will use artwork created by workshop participants as inspiration for several original rug designs which will be entered into the firm’s first-ever Art Day competition.
Oriental Rug Review, 1995 "These are not the people who present glossy ads proclaiming their own superiority, who reserve to themselves and to their companies all credit for producing beautiful rugs, but rather those producers who live and work in the country of origin of the rugs."
