Specifics on this piece: The embroidery was salvaged from an older piece and made into a small wallet or jewelry pouch, perfect for storing special earrings, pendants or other smaller pieces. Maroon cotton lining on the inside matches bias tape that closes the outside. Small glass seed beads decorate the piece all the way around.

Afghanistan has been at the heart of the crossroads for the Silk Road for centuries. Nomads and generations of ethnic groups have thrived on trade and beautiful handicraft skills. Textiles, embroidery and carpet weaving continue to represent a plethora of skills that extend on into metal smithing, wood work, and ceramics. Designs reflect both the beauty of nature and life of spirit in choice of colors and fluidity of the design.

Please visit my store for more treasures from Afghanistan! I work directly with artisans and pay fair prices for vintage goods. I immigrated to the United States over twenty years ago, but wish to continue to support trade in my mother country, a place of beauty which desperately needs economic support.
