McKinney, TX, February 26, 2014 --(PR.com)-- March 20-23, 2014, join Fair & Square Imports in celebrating the amazing talent of artisans in Pakistan who are bettering their community through the traditional art of rug making.

The event features fair trade rugs handmade by fairly paid Christian and Muslim adults working together with the artisan group “Bunyaad" in Pakistan (no child labor).

Each rug purchase supports education, adult literacy, housing and more in Pakistan.
