Excellent video on rug making, produced and filmed in Afghanistan by Label-Step a fair trade (NGO) organization. Look at the dresses of the women. Early in the video is a good close-up of women tying a symmetrical knot typical of Afghan weaving.
After two "traditional" rug stores and one kid store that carriers rugs, the reward was the Denver Aquarium. So glad we were both on are best behavior today. Work hard, have fun. #weavingthruamerica #denver #denveraquarium #rugreward #rugforthetoys
Designing, making, and selling rugs is a global business and has been since before the beginning of recorded history. Rug News andDesign covers the whole gamut of subjects both in print and online.
