Zardozi Artisan Story
Afghanistan

 

ZDZ-artisan-1 

 

 

 

 

 

Zardozi, an ancient form of Persian embroidery, is known for its intricate patterns, which are often inlayed with pearls or other precious stones. While typically associated with royalty, the time-honored art has also inspired a social movement: Zardozi Markets for Afghan Artisans, a Kabul-based NGO that helps artisans and refugees find new markets for their crafts.
