Laylo Kamalova

Laylo Kamalova is a resident of Farhor district, Khatlon Region. She is a talented artisan known throughout the area. Laylo is skilled at making tagsari, toupees and chodars, men’s shirts, yakkabands (cradle accessories), a skill she picked from her mother and at labor lessons in school. “Thanks to everyone who taught me to sew, says Laylo. – Now I can create beautiful things for myself and for everyone who wants to by my products. Customers come from Dushanbe and Kulyab. This means my work is appreciated, and that makes me happy. Before I thought embroidery work requires a lot of efforts, more than I could handle. But a person can learn anything and achieve anything if they try hard enough”.
Today Laylo’s craft yields a good revenue for her. However, this is not a stable source of money, and Laylo wants to find a regular sales channel. With the money earned from selling her products, Laylo buys raw materials for her future work, supports her family, and recently she also equipped a mini-facility in a special room where she and several her apprentices make beautiful goods decorated with national embroidery.
