Afghanistan is ranked as one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world. We believe that AZEZANA can contribute its fair share to help rebuild Afghanistan by focusing on the idea that everything we do needs to have a positive impact on the Afghan economy.

AZEZANA's approach is therefore pragmatic and aims to be wholly Afghan in nature.


AZEZANA is run and managed by Afghans and all raw materials and equipment, from silk to wooden looms, are solely produced in Afghanistan.

The creation of each AZEZANA shawl thus supports Afghan silk farmers, carpenters, widows and their families alike.

This way, your purchase of an AZEZANA shawl rebuilds Afghanistan in a broad-based and sustainable way.
