Embroidery for all / A business for rural women

Embroidery for all
Embroidery for all
Embroidery for all

Me and my husband have been teaching embroidery to more than 300 rural women since a few years ago and produced several products like cushions, pillow covers, curtains, etc. We started doing marketing and sale while they (rural women) did the embroideries. Under a brand named Dooziba all products are sold to all over the country. Hand embroidery is a forgotten art in the region and this helped survive it. We have been teaching more and more women in our Province. We are now -by educating and empowering women in the villages- help their self confidence, independence and economy. All Products by them is sold through our -or their own- channels
