Buy A Loom
Help an Afghan weaver
Weaving is a centuries old tradition in Afghanistan and is currently still one of the only acceptable ways for women in the country to earn wages. Families often go into debt renting looms from rug dealers. Arzu provides all weavers registered in our program the loom, wool and tools necessary to create unique handmade rugs.
Your donation buys a quality rug loom for a weaver whose earnings are the sole source of income for her family. By providing a loom for a weaver, you support sustainable income for women in Afghanistan - many of whom have become widows during the war and are responsible for single-handedly supporting the entire family.
