  1. Surely more Afghan folk could make an even better living if they were able to get such carpets into wider markets. I for one demand the introduction of “Fair Trade” Afghan / Persian carpets – they are very beautiful, quality products and usually hard wearing I believe. Skills like these are priceless all over the world!

  2. Sources say by the time the girl knotters are about 15, they’re over the hill as their eyesight is not as acute as the younger ones.

  3. Afghans having a great talent of how to make marvelous carpets; and are into a gigantesque turmoil of wars. It is to be sorry about that people. There could modernized to make fast just to make worsted doing so and have more money.
