My Marrakesh: Kabul and the Quest for Beauty

I thought I'd share these three posts from the blog My Marrakesh, showing photos of artisans at work in Kabul, Afghanistan.  The art forms represented here are (as far as I know, except for the contemporary fashion designer) prevalent throughout Islamic cities and are beautiful wherever they are found.  Unfortunately there isn't much information, so just enjoy the photos found at each link (I've included only one photo per link below).
