Helping the traditional craftsmen

Some embroidery from Kanju, Shah Deri and traditional Swati shawls and scarves from Islampur and Fatehpur are available at Swat Valley Handicrafts, in craftsman village near Mobilink flower shops, F6 Islamabad. Thanks to the CDA, we helped a craftsman from Swat to get this shop, because his market was destroyed by the conflict in Malakand. It is a space specifically to promote traditional cratfs from Swat and craftswomen and men from Swat keep their hand made crafts in this shop for sale.
