About the Weaver

We were first introduced to Selnaz by her jeweler son, named Mexluq. Selnaz had not woven in over 15 years, but she was boldly ready to give it another try. Selna other son works in Russia, which is not uncommon. Men often venture beyond the village to find work and opportunities to provide for their family.

Selnaz’s greatest joy is having so much of her family living close to her. All of her daughters live nearby, and she loves spending time with her grandchildren. The house always seems alive with activity. It is full of family and neighbors because everyone is welcome.
