    Story

    The Impact

    Each placemat has been handwoven by women in Mazar-e Sharif, Afghanistan. ISHKAR has worked with weavers in Afghanistan for years, initially working with women who’d been internally displaced because of drought, and now we’ve expanded our enterprise to other weavers across the country. With the new restrictions from the Taliban, women are prevented from almost all employment but weaving from home is one of the few livelihoods possible.

    The Artisans

    Every placemat is made by hand from start to finish. The process of making the wool and dyeing it is done by men, as is washing the final product. But the weaving of the placemat is done by women from in their own homes. 

    The Wool

    These placemats are entirely made of Afghan Ghazni wool. Each strand of wool is individually spun by hand, and naturally dyed, giving the placemats great character.
