Hand Stitched

This detail of a table cover is an example of hand-decorating in the traditional churma style. With help from Catholic Relief Services, Afghan refugee women in Pakistan learn to make elaborate stitching. They also take part in a small business development program in the city of Quetta in southwestern Pakistan. The income earned from these businesses allows them to contribute significantly to their family’s income. Photo by Joe Lapp for CRS.
