Over the last decade, there has been a revolution in contemporary design and artisan practice in Afghanistan. A country famed for its handmade carpets, elaborate woodwork and rich jewelry traditions, Afghanistan is now harnessing these artisanal skills to make beautiful and sought after contemporary design pieces.

 

Over the next five years, Turquoise Mountain aims to transform the lives of 5,000 Afghan artisans by bringing their high-end products to international markets. Turquoise Mountain is one of the Prince’s Charities.
