Bunyaad Rugs in Ontario
At the present time, Ten Thousand Villages Cobourg is the only source for Bunyaad rugs in Ontario. While we keep a small number of smaller sizes on display year round, our annual rug event is the opportunity to view over two hundred hand-knotted, fair trade carpets in all sizes.
Purchasing a high quality rug is a big decision and best done in person. Pictures are helpful to assess styles and designs, but colours are best viewed in person. In fact, we don't want customers to actually purchase a carpet until they have had the chance to try it in their home for a day or two to make sure it really is "the one".
The artisans in Pakistan who create these rugs take months to design, knot, and finish them with time-honoured techniques and a passion for the art of rug making. In selecting a rug, we want to continue that thoughtful process to ensure you have the carpet that you want.
