This hand-quilted, linen throw that will be made to order by Souher Kaalaji and Imade Zeynabe in Zena Sabbagh’s Beirut atelier. After fleeing Syria in 2012 Zena established a workshop to create economic opportunities for a group of Iraqi, Syrian, Palestinian and Lebanese women. The geometric design for this quilt draws inspiration from details in the city’s architecture. It can be used on a bed or as a decorative wall hanging.

Story

THE ARTISAN.

For two thousand years Herat’s distinctive coloured glass was traded along the length of the Silk Road. Ghulam Sekhi is one of the last in this ancient line of glassblowers. In a mudbrick workshop at the base of Herat’s ancient citadel, his work is keeping this precious industry alive.

Location : HERAT, AFGHANISTAN

Artisan : GHULAM SEKI

THE TECHNIQUE.

Ghulam makes glass in much the same way as it has always been made. He grinds quartz, plant ash (otherwise known as 'Ishkar'), and natural oxides together to create the vibrant colours which once made Herat’s glass so famous. He blows each individual glass by hand, and fires them in a traditional mud brick kiln.

THE IMPACT.

With the local market for handblown glass drying up due to the arrival of cheap Chinese glass in Afghanistan, Ghulam Sekhi is struggling to find new apprentices. Each sale of Herati glass will help build the stability Ghulam needs for his business to grow.
