DescriptionIn 1978, Aarong, started an initiative in Jamalpur through BRAC's development programme to organise, train and support, rural women through the art of Nakshi Kantha. Later, this initiative took institutional shape in the establishment of the Ayesha Abed Foundation (AAF). Today, there are 16,000 women in four AAF's in Jamalpur, Sherpur, Jessore and Kushtia. Over the last thirty years, the art of Nakshi Kantha has increasingly developed, with designers using the particular stitch in more modern uses and interpretations.
