Meet Masooda: The Artisan Behind the Apron

A mother of six and a passionate crafter, she carries the legacy of her homeland through her embroidery and crochet work. Taught by her mother, Masooda's skills are a testament to the enduring spirit of Afghan culture. Masooda currently resides in Dallas, Texas.

Words from Masooda

"My mother taught me to sew many years ago and I also practice embroidery and crochet. My mother and my family have always been an inspiration to me. It’s been my dream to own a small business. When I am not crafting, I am working towards getting my GED, taking ESL classes, and caring for my family. Thank you for your support and I do hope you enjoy my designs."
