The Ten Thousand Villages of Cincinnati is organised by Ed and Karen Diller, the founders of the Ten Thousand Villages project. The aim of the event is to fundraise in order to sponsor fair trade workers in countries including India were crafts people create handmade clothing and accessories for the NGO that are then sold across America. The organisation uses hand-printed Indian fabrics in its clothing and loungewear and these will be on display along with other Indian clothing and textiles. Indian textiles and handmade clothing will be celebrated at the event that will take place at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center on November 9.

The event will comprise dinner, silent auctions, live entertainment from the Cultural Centre Of India and D-Fresh Entertainment, LLC. It will be a celebration of Indian culture and Indian fair trade textiles and clothing.

The Ten Thousand Villages NGO is a fair trade, non-profit organisation that works with artisans in developing countries to bring their products and stories to our market through long term fair trading relationships. Many of the villages the NGO works with are located in India and handmade textiles feature heavily in the organisation’s products.
