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.


  1. It's a very beautiful rug, Pam. It's amazing work, isn't it?

  2. Yes Tania, I'm becoming increasingly aware of the intricate beauty of our new rug, the longer I look at it.
