Visiting the villages

I was taken on an incredible journey to visit the tribal villages 50k outside of Buhj. These women create mirrored pieces, quilts, dolls and embroidery by hand. They work through a collective run by Meena and Punkaj called Qasab. Working this way gives the women income and power in the village. I had to promise not to take photos of the women, which was difficult, as they were so colorful and beautiful.
