Zarif Design

Founded by the dark-eyed beauty, Zolaykha Sherzad, Zarif Design is not just about creating small revolutions (fabric for men are now redesigned for women) it is also about re-infusing energy back into the cultural crafts such as weaving and embroidery. She’s reinvented the Uzbek chapan (coat for men that Karzai made famous) and taken a turban to make a blouse for women. These accomplishments are so much grander than my printed t-shirts…  Viva La Feminist Resistance! A self-proclaimed bridge between here and there, Sherzad’s visual interpretation of Reconstruction Era Afghanistan is reaching the world.
