Looking for that perfect home accent?

Ten Thousand Villages of Austin’s annual Oriental rug sale is right around the corner!  Our rug sale will feature beautiful, heirloom-quality, handknotted Oriental rugs made by fairly paid adults.  The rugs are exquisitely designed and crafted by JAKCISS Oriental Rugs, an artisan group in Pakistan.

Your purchase at the rug sale will directly benefit the families making them.  JAKCISS now includes more than 800 families in over 100 villages across Pakistan.  You can have a tremendous impact by helping to create sustainability and hope in these communities.

These rugs will travel the country and will only be available for purchase in Austin for a limited time!  Join us anytime between Thursday, September 18 – Monday, September 22 for this exciting event.  Come by on Thursday, browse the collection, sleep on it if you wish, and come back to make your final selection.
