Welcome to Afghan Hands online store.
Dear Afghan Hands friends,
With infinite gratitude we appreciate all your support during the past 8 years. Up until this January of 2005 only 11 out of 65 women had been master embroiderers. We were able to showcase their work, sell their exquisite products and provide jobs and creative outlet for the rest of our participants.
We now have 60 such master embroiderers, and we proudly sustain 100 women both in Kabul. This has allowed us to dramatically reduce the prices of these breathtaking one-of-a-kind pieces so that many more of our loyal supporter and friends can enjoy owning these amazing artisan pieces.
Please browse our hand-embroidered collection of shawls. Each piece is unique, made of cashmere, wool, pure cotton, and pure silk. Each is signed. The artisan's signature is embroidered in Dari, which is the native language of Kabul, Afghanistan.
In the past year we've added hand embroidered pillows to the collection. They are made of cotton and/or silk with feather/down inserts.
