Video | Beyond the Factory: Handweaving

In a new episode of Beyond the Factory, exploring labor intensive workshops around Egypt, journalist Mostafa Darwish launches into the world of the dying craft of handweaving and quiltmaking in Sohag’s Akhmeem. This video explores the work of a local NGO in Akhmeem that is supporting weavers and quilt makers in the town, who are predominantly women, and providing a space for them to earn a living.
