The Annual Oriental Rug Event will be at The Work of Our Hands in Pella this Wednesday through Saturday. There will be a wide variety, ranging from intricate florals to hand-spun natural dye wool tribals, and sizes range from 2’x3′ to 10’x 14′. These rugs have been designed and hand-knotted by highly skilled and fairly paid adults working with a fair trade Oriental rug company, with the workers living in villages throughout Pakistan. Anyone considering an Oriental rug purchase, or who would like to learn more about the art of Oriental rug making, rug care, or room design is invited to attend an Introduction to Oriental Rugs Evening Thursday at 6:30 pm.
