Did it come from a plant, an animal or bug? Who’s hands touched it while it was being crafted? Do they find their home in Italy, Turkey or India?

Amongst the community it is known to be a prestigious position and the women are given less important jobs. Hours are spent creating designs rich in texture and colour which eventually find their way into beautiful homes.
