Day 77 A new rug
Here's our new rug from Afghanistan.My daughter has met an Afghani family near where she lives who sell rugs made back in their homeland. Apparently the man's father acts as a middleman who organizes the collection and exportation of these rugs. My daughter has been assured the rug making industries are home based and do not use exploited labour - but that's hard to be totally confident about. Anyway, hopefully our purchase of this beautiful rug will go to helping someone in that poor punished land.
