Easy on the local environment

Natural wool from sheep raised among the peaks of the Hindukush range of central Afghanistan is spun and dyed using environmentally friendly natural dyes.

Generational Traditions

Each rug is then skillfully hand-knotted by a local family with generations of women often working on the rug over the course of weeks or even months.

Listen to Their Stories

Afghanistan, a land known for decades-long wars, is home to people who have managed to endure in the face of daily struggles beyond imagination. Families suffering from a seemingly unsurmountable lack of basic resources are the norm. Mothers in Afghanistan often bear the brunt of worrying about how to feed their families while at the same time being restricted from working outside of their homes for the foreseeable future.

A Brighter Future

Our team includes Afghan web developers who will build and manage the online storefront, and Kabul University students who envision the designs for our modern patterned offerings. Mothers and their daughters work side by side while receiving equitable compensation and taking hold of their own futures.

Be a part of their story
