Connie Duckworth, ARZU’s CEO, met Habiba on her first trip to Kabul in 2003 when she was the Women’s minister. She became the first and only Afghan woman minister of Bamyan in spring 2004 and formally asked Connie to bring ARZU to Bamyan Province. We have worked closely with her since and she will attend the grand opening of all three of our new facilities in August.

Happy Earth Day! In honor, we’re featuring our unique Eco Wool Collection. You can browse the rugs on our website here.
ABOUT THE COLLECTION: Sheep that graze at high altitudes produce the highest quality wool in the world. The natural hues of this wool, which vary from dark grey, to brown, to ivory and cream, inspired our Eco Wool Collection. The wool is handspun, but not dyed, and is used to create hand-knotted rug designs inspired by the wool’s simplicity. The Eco Wool Collection allows the natural fiber to be the star, yet is rich enough to fit into the most luxurious interior.
