Beautiful Nura in traditional Afghan dress.


Beautiful Nura in traditional Afghan dress which is worn during joyous celebrations. Nura epitomizes the essence of celebrating cultural heritage. Here is a wonderful hand-sewn doll. The body is sewn from flesh-colored cotton. Embroidered eyes and face. The hair is made of black wool and pinned up in a bun. Nura is dressed in a very costumed dress. The colors are extremely vivid. We have turquoise, flowers, orange red and lots of gold. The dress is removable. Earrings and hair ornaments are extraordinary beauty and craftsmanship. They are not removable. I brought this beautiful doll and many others for you from my recent trip to India. Each doll is hand sewn with great care and tenderness. Each one tells its own story and bears the touch of the hands that sewed it. It reflects the dreams of women refugees from Afghanistan for a better future filled with peace, stability and a revival of their cultural heritage. May it bring you joy:)
