This Kuchi bag didn’t make it up on my blog the other day but here it is. The Kuchis are a semi-nomadic minority group in Afghanistan and these clutch bags use their traditional style of exuberant detailed embroidery. Sewn into the border are tiny little mirrors which dance and sparkle when they catch light. Afghanistan might well be the hardest country in the world to be a woman. The highly-skilled women who make these bags live tough lives to be sure. By getting a fair wage for their work hopefully their burdens are made just a tiny bit lighter.
