Meet Bibi: The Artisan Behind the Stocking

Bibi is the talented artisan behind this embroidered stocking. She is an Afghan refugee currently living in New Jersey with her husband and young son.

Bibi's sister-in-law, also a skilled embroiderer, collaborates with her on designs.

Bibi's work is deeply rooted in traditional Afghan embroidery techniques, passed down through generations. Her craft is not only a means of artistic expression but also a path to financial independence and security.

Each piece she creates is a reflection of her journey, her heritage, and her resilience as she builds a new life far from home.

Rumi Spice is proud to support Bibi's work, showcasing the rich cultural heritage of Afghanistan through contemporary fashion.
