Arzu Studio Hope rugs empower Afghani women, lead to Design Within Reach trunk show
The modern furnishings store Design Within Reach is partnering with Arzu Studio Hope to offer a collection of limited-edition handmade rugs available at a Los Angeles trunk show Oct. 29.
Arzu Studio Hope is a nonprofit social enterprise that supports women in Afghanistan by selling the rugs they weave at home, where they can care for their families. The goal is to give women above-market compensation so they and their families have access to education and healthcare in the war-ravaged country.
