About this Artisan
Throughout central Asia, cultural and artistic traditions have been preserved through the generations as women work with their mothers and grandmothers creating masterful crafts. Master’s Handicrafts is helping to preserve these traditions by employing women who would otherwise be forced to work in miserable, inhumane conditions. Through Master’s Handicrafts, women are able to stay home with their children, do something they love, get paid a reasonable wage, and continue to learn new skills and techniques.
The partnership between Master's Handicrafts and WorldCrafts enables these women to pay their bills for food, electricity, and other needs. Some have even been able to buy freezers to store food for winter. These women have expanded their worldviews and spend time thinking about the offer of eternal life.
