It's finally here! This weekend only, Fair & Square Imports, a fair trade shop in downtown McKinney, is hosting a Fair Trade Oriental Rug Event this Thursday-Sunday March 19-22 that aims to change the way rugs are made and sold, featuring rugs that provide opportunity and security directly to adult artisans.

On Thursday, March 19 at 6 pm, Fair & Square Imports will be hosting a Chocolate & Wine Evening Rug Preview where individuals can learn about how Oriental rugs are made and how fair trade makes a difference both in in artisans’ lives and Oriental rug quality.
