Dear Mishek,
a very important project for sure. I just have a few questions: why a particular focus on women? Is it not possible to include both men and women in the process? Also, can some of the property being restored be considered “historical” in any way?
Thanks!
Scott

Dear Salika,
lovely idea, and a brave project to undertake in this region. I find it particularly important that you also engage men in the process. Do you also have some access to the thread production, which would allow you to offer for instance “organic” material to the weavers? Also, does the market (local or international?) have the capacity to absorb the new scale of production? Also, who is engaged in the design of the patterns?
Again, very interesting!
Best,
Scott @ Turquoise Mountain
