It’s my life, she says about the craft. I lived my whole life making Ajraks, she says. But everything has changed. The water for the treatment has become scarce. It’s either flooding or very little water. Climate change is affecting these small businesses in the area. Now they have to travel to far places to treat the products. Water bodies are becoming distant every season. The cost of making an Ajrak are increasing without the market prices going up. The economy isn’t helping either. The material used in the Ajrak making has become so expensive. It has become impossible to maintain the art and survive at the same time. Her family has been going through hard times and she is looking for a way out of this
She feels hopeful. Being connected to a bigger market shall help her with her business. WoMart is an opportunity that she is excited to work on. Her products are made with love and passion.
