Afghan Women Learn Traditional Carpet Weaving

Jul 7, 2011

Showcasing this skill to the public

The carpet weaving projects have expanded as AIL is now offering this instruction at the newly re-opened Citadel in Herat City.  This location is for the public, and classes are being held on a regular basis and the required materials and instructors are being paid for by AIL.  As interest in this skill grows, the need for additional frames becomes necessary.  AIL Staff took a frame for carpet making from one of the learning centers and will be making plans to purchase two additional frames soon in order to continue the production of carpets.
