Fatemeh makes traditional dolls. But to her, what she makes are more than dolls. “These dolls tell stories about our lives. They portray our culture, our beliefs and much more” she says.
Looking back at her childhood days, Fatemeh says: “My grandmother used to make these dolls for me and as a child I used to play with them. I never thought that one day I could sell them and that they can be a source of income for me – or for other women in this village.”
