The Craftsman

When the Taliban came to power in the 1990s, Abdul Mateen helped bury his family’s pottery tools before fleeing to Pakistan as a refugee. Unburying his tools a decade later, Abdul Mateen has since risen to prominence as the finest Afghan potter of his generation.

The Location

Artisans have been making pottery in the village of Istalif for the last 400 years. The picturesque village is nestled in the foothills of the Hindu Kush, and is a popular picnicking spot for Kabul’s residents on the weekend. 

The Impact

On top of the amount we pay the artisans, a further 5% goes towards the Turquoise Mountain Foundation. Turquoise Mountain supports Afghan artisans by providing them with three years of technical training, as well as a full range of business support following graduation
