Pakistani handicrafts are not only intricate and beautiful, but also depict the local culture.
I am surprised that you have carried this story as most of these handicrafts are of poor quality, lack any imagination (ie the same are cloned for the last 50 years) and some are very very basic designs.
@abigail: Beauty lies in simplicity.
They are great. May be my understanding of art is not as expansive as ‘abigail”s but to my uninitiated eyes, they all looked so elegant and beautiful specifically some of the brass-work and earthen ware.
Plz mention the cities
Finally ET focussed on something other than fashion shows :D
The folk and cultural art remains same centuries after centuries and that is ts beauty and is all about. Stay surprised Abigail!!!
I lived in texas samll town and here peoples makes and hangs in banks and post offices same like what we have in pakistan called AJrak or Guddi and u know makes these things here in Texas peoples who migrated from zchack o salvakia and Germany hudred years ago…. and peoples really like it and buys it.
looks a mix of pakistani and rajastani
Awesome work Farah!!!
@ dude108: this is typically sindhi culture… one of the oldest civilizations & culture.
Thank you for showing such a nice collection…..this is promotion of Pakistani art in the true sense, not fashion shows which the ET seems to be obsessed with….
