Over 320 Fairly Traded Pakistani rugs are now on display at the Austin Ten Thousand Villages. Natural Dyes, traditional and modern patterns and beautiful colors in wool fill the store. It’s a beautiful sight!

During the volunteer seminar yesterday, we learned what a living wage is per rug. The artisan receives 62% of the price, with the rest going towards transportation costs and marketing.
