Transnistria (an unrecognized autonomous area within Moldova) has a pretty big textile industry.  One thing they do is make home goods for stores such as Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma.  If you go to their factory outlet, it's much much less expensive than buying in the US.  We went while we were on an embassy trip on Columbus day.  Part of what we bought was this circular bamboo-print tablecloth, a pair of hot pads, and a pair of chair pads that we are going to use as trivets.  All of this, at top quality (they don't sell seconds), came to about $20.  Not bad at all.
