Carpet Weavers Face Challenges
Nearly fifty women and girls are busy weaving carpets in a carpet-weaving workshop located in the city of Faizabad.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA)_Monitoring, These women say that the lack of a carpet processing center, a suitable market for selling, and the lack of a specific place for carpet weaving has made their work difficult.
“We don’t have a good place for washing carpets and when they are transferred to Kunduz province it costs us a lot,” said Nadia, a carpet weaver.
“We face challenges and we lack some materials,” said Fawzia, a carpet weaver.
Officials of the carpet weaver’s union in Badakhshan said that currently, four thousand women are busy with carpet weaving in this province.
“Four thousand women are busy with carpet weaving, they work with us for two years and after that, they graduate and we give them a certificate,” said Abdul Ali, the head of the carpet weavers union in Badakhshan.
“When women report their products to us, we are ready and have a plan for them,” said Samruldden Rahmani, head of the industrial park in Badakhshan.
According to officials of the industry and commerce department in Badakhshan, currently 10 carpet weaving workshops are active in Badakhshan.
