The Sugar Hill Market vendor that founded XYZ Cooperative in Central Harlem started up the business to help fair trade in Mexico and to also help keep a village's heritage alive.  All of these beautiful rugs are made by traditional methods passed down for generations in Oaxaco, Mexico which is slowly becoming a town of mothers and grandmothers who are trying to keep the art alive because so many of the younger villagers have moved elsewhere.

Rugs are priced accordingly as one would expect to find at a more commercial home store but these are the real items and not copies made in the Far East.  Designers such as Ralph Lauren have used these native indian themes for traditional interior and the bold, graphic aesthetic looks beautiful in both modern and classic homes.  With that said, prices will be much more affordable than anything Ralph Lauren would try to sell for your home.

XYZ Cooperative will have rugs on display at the Sunday, March 30th Sugar Hill Market located within 458 West 145th Street's  2nd Floor Parlor.  A full catalog will also be provided so interested buyers can also have rugs custom ordered by size requirements.
