    Nice video on how the carpets are weaved. Sajma is certainly an expert weaver who has a great smile. She moves much faster than you knit, Kelsey.

    Fantastic video – as a lover of weaving, it amazes me to see this done by hand without a huge floor loom. These pieces are done one by one so you know each creation has the weaver constantly thinking of why they are being made… and LOVE hearing your voice Kelsey -it’s like you’re right next door!!!
