Afghan Women Learn Traditional Carpet Weaving

Aug 9, 2010

Summer Update 2010

The Afghanistan Institute of Learning carpet weavers are widows that have very limited ways to earn a living. Many live with extended family. AIL has space at an education learning center where set up looms allow eight women to create handmade carpets. The center has a master carpet weaver who works with the less advanced weavers in an apprenticeship program. Between January and June, 2010, the weavers have completed fifteen carpets and are presently working on three carpets.
