Hello, fellow San Diegans! My name is Nargis, and I have the pleasure of sharing my passion for exquisite handmade Afghan rugs with you today. As a proud San Diego resident and business owner, I'm committed to bringing the finest quality, sustainable, and fair trade rugs to our beautiful city. In this blog post, I'll share the story behind my business, the process of creating these unique rugs, and why they are the perfect addition to your San Diego home.
My Journey from Afghanistan to San Diego
I immigrated to San Diego in 2006 from Afghanistan with my husband, and we have been blessed with two beautiful daughters. We've embraced the San Diego lifestyle and love spending time at the beach, exploring Balboa Park, and dining at local restaurants. Like many of you, we take pride in our San Diego roots and cherish our vibrant, diverse community.
My love for handmade rugs was born in Afghanistan, where I was surrounded by the artistry and skill of the talented female artisans who create these masterpieces. (You can read about my journey here.) Determined to share this beautiful art form with my new home, I founded my own rug business, which now boasts both an online and brick-and-mortar presence. Our showroom is located in Vista, California, and is open by appointment only.
Supporting Female Artisans Through Fair Trade
At the heart of my business is a commitment to supporting the female artisans in Afghanistan who create these stunning rugs. By working with them directly and following a fair trade program, I ensure that they receive fair wages and safe working conditions. This not only empowers them economically but also helps preserve their rich cultural heritage.
Every Rug Tells a Story
Each handmade Afghan rug is a testament to the skill, dedication, and creativity of the artisans who craft them. Made from high-quality materials like hand-spun wool and natural dyes, these rugs are not only visually stunning but also exceptionally durable. The intricate patterns and motifs woven into each rug tell a story, making them a conversation piece and a work of art in your home.
The Perfect Addition to Your San Diego Home
As a fellow San Diegan, I understand the importance of selecting home décor items that reflect our unique sense of style and commitment to sustainability. My handmade Afghan rugs are the perfect choice for San Diego shoppers for several reasons:
Quality: Each rug is crafted using traditional techniques passed down through generations, ensuring the highest quality and durability. You can be confident that your investment in one of these rugs will provide you with a lifetime of beauty and enjoyment.
Fair Trade and Sustainability: When you purchase a rug from my business, you're not only getting a stunning piece of art but also supporting a sustainable and ethical supply chain. You can feel good about your purchase, knowing that you're contributing to the well-being of the female artisans who create these rugs and the preservation of their cultural heritage.
Pet-Friendly and Hypo-Allergenic: I understand that many San Diego households have beloved pets, so I've ensured that our newer rugs are pet-friendly and hypo-allergenic. This means that even the most sensitive family members can enjoy the comfort and beauty of a handmade Afghan rug.
