Each year, Just Creations offers a special 4-day Oriental Rug Event, featuring a collection of more than 300 hand-knotted, heirloom-quality rugs made by fairly-paid adults in Pakistan. Sizes range from 2’ x 3’s to 10’ x 14’s, as well as runners in varying sizes.
While we have a small selection of rugs in stock throughout the year, we host this special event once a year to bring a larger quantity and greater selection of rugs from the Bunyaad Rug Gallery in Ephrata, Pennsylvania. These high-quality, fairly-traded rugs represent a win-win situation for all — a high-quality, fairly-priced, hand-knotted rug for the consumer and a fair-paying, consistent job for artisans.

Over the years, Bunyaad has grown to include over 850 families in more than 100 villages. These villages are located in two provinces, Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (formerly the North West Frontier Province). The finishing center and warehouse are both located in Lahore, Pakistan’s second largest city. At Just Creations, we believe in a global economy that is sustainable and fair to everyone involved. This means providing well made, quality products for our customers and a fair, livable income for our artisans.
