WHY ME, WHY US, WHY NOW?
For four days at a tradeshow, I watched many men’s faces almost break down into tears over hearing and seeing what a witch hunt can do to their core beliefs. I have seen passion for the truth leaping from their beings.
I have felt the sorrow of the most recent attack on their country, on their business, sink in as reality of what false truths can do.
I was brought up playing on piles of carpets. I listened to my father speak passionately about the changes. I visited rug factories in the 80’s and 00’s. I joined Rug News andDesign because I believed in the importance of spreading information, educating and sharing in the diverse culture of the rug industry.
I am a mother. I am a daughter. I am a reporter.
Rug News andDesign has for 35 years been the trade magazine. We have fought alongside rug companies as the world has changed, as the markets have changed. We have traveled. We have listened. We have asked the questions. We have shared.
Rug News andDesign cares about the success of your business.
