Our Kilims and crapets are predominately woven by women in northern Afghanistan. In rural areas of Afghanistan carpet weaving is one of the few jobs women are 'culturally sanctioned' to do. Creating jobs in the carpet sector is therefore a very effective tool for economically empowering women across the country.
Each strand of wool used is individually spun by hand, giving the carpets great character. With its unusually long strands Ghazni wool is also famously hardwearing, meaning Afghan carpets can survive for centuries.
