International Craft Festival & Rug Event

November 8November 11

Rug Event in State College

Large international craft festival and rug event with a wide variety of fairly traded products including hand knotted rugs, handicrafts, housewares, jewelry, scarves, purses and accessories, kitchenware, bath products and more.

Have you ever wanted an Oriental rug? Not just any rug, but one with the quality to last a lifetime and the fair trade labor standards you demand? Come and explore our large selection of Tribal, Bokhara and Persian rugs. From Classic to Contemporary in sizes from 2’x3′ to 10’x14′ and runners. All of the rugs are hand-knotted by fairly paid adults in Pakistan.

Prepare For The Rug Event

We host this special event once a year to bring these high quality, fairly traded hand-knotted rugs to our community. Since the rugs will be here for just a few days, we encourage you to do a little prep.

  • When you visit our rug event, bring swatches of materials and upholstery, paint chips and pillows to help you choose a rug that will blend with your decor.
  • Measure your room as well as the area you would want your rug to cover. Large rugs are impressive while smaller rugs can be more versatile. Be flexible in sizing and you will increase the number of rugs to choose from.

  • Remember that an Oriental rug will last for generations, while your furniture, upholstery and home will change.
  • Consider rugs that speak to you, rather than one that simply matches its surroundings. Be open to taking rugs home on approval, keeping in mind the rug you finally choose may not be the rug you first selected.
