About the Weaver

reWoven first met Zenfira through her neighbor, Shoret, who also weaves with our project. They both have very similar styles of weaving with precise knots and finely trimmed piles. But Zenfira did not always live in Kosalar village, nor did she grow up weaving. Zenfira grew up in Migli village of Bolnisi region where there was no rug weaving. She married into Kosalar, and learned how to weave from her new mother-in-law. She picked up the craft quickly and continues the tradition today by weaving with her own daughter-in-law. Zenfira has 6 grandchildren, and one is already married. So a great-grandchild is imminent at the young age of 56.
