Come visit Rubia’s booth at the East Village Fair on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 11am-4pm. We’ll be selling beautiful mud cloth (bogolan) made by our artist partners in Mali, Tanti Bogolan Women’s Cooperative and Ndomo Workshop and Natural Dyeing Conservatory.
We’ll also feature our new collection of indigo scarfs just in from Segou.
For those of you who have asked about our Afghan embroidery, we’ll be selling beautiful coats hand-made by our Master embroiderer, Hafiza.
Looking forward to seeing you at Follen Church society where the 80th annual East Village Fair will take place at 755 Massachusetts Ave. in Lexington, MA 02420.
