World Record Rug Attempt

26 October, 2012

Fair@Square, Australia's largest fair-trade and ethical festival, will attempt to break a world record this October as they line the banks of the Yarra River with multi-coloured, hand woven, recycled rugs.

However this attempt to break the longest line of such rugs has a bigger purpose; to raise awareness and funds for the women who have made the rugs. These women are mothers from Cambodia who are desperately trying to keep their children off the streets.

RMIT students will also be selling hand made cushions made from fair-trade cotton on the day, with the funds to also go towards Cambodian mothers.

Fair@Square attracts around 76, 000 people every year; this year, be one of them!

Where: Federation Square
When: 10:30am, Friday 26th of October, 2012
