In spring 2015, the Swiss Hand Embroiderers’ Guild hosted an online  auction.

20% of the net income went directly to Guldusi, an embroidery project of the German-Afghan Initiative e.V. (DAI) that was jointly founded in 2002 by Germans and Afghans as a non-profit relief organisation. The DAI tells about Guldusi that “many of the women living in rural areas of Afghanistan are highly skilled embroiderers. We aim to provide opportunities for them to generate an income using their embroidery skills. At the same time we hope that these projects will help to safeguard traditional hand embroidery skills from disappearing” (cited).

Following is the gallery of all the works that were put up for auction.
