Zardozi Artisan Story
Zardozi, an ancient form of Persian embroidery, is known for its intricate patterns, which are often inlayed with pearls or other precious stones. While typically associated with royalty, the time-honored art has also inspired a social movement: Zardozi Markets for Afghan Artisans, a Kabul-based NGO that helps artisans and refugees find new markets for their crafts.
This notable zardozi pattern, an ancient form of Persian embroidery, creates a practical zippered pouch just perfect for money, pens and pencils and other small items. Handmade by female artisans at Zardozi Markets for Afghan Artisans, a non-governmental organization committed to helping Afghan artisans find markets for their crafts.
