Carpet Weaving Being Taught In Two Locations

AIL Herat now has two centers for carpet weaving.  One location is in the Yacoobi Foundation educational learning center with 24 students.  The other location is a newly opened class in the restored Citadel in Herat City.  Currently there is one loom with two carpet weavers.  In the same room are the silk-weaving looms, where the ancient craft of silk-weaving is being taught.
