Mavludahon's story

Mavludahon is a 66 year old woman from the town of Isfara who does embroidery by hand and makes embroidered pillow-cases and other national handiwork. She learned this craft from her mother when she was a young girl. "Embroidery is labor-intensive and requires total commitment," Mavludahon says. "A woman without a craft is like a tree without fruit. And in order to become proficient in a craft, you must love what you do." Mavludahon embroiders for herself, her relatives, and for her clients from the region. Mavludahon spends an enormous amount of time embroidering. She will be successful in everything. She has applied for a loan to purchase more fabric and other sewing accessories.
