A women's handicrafts exhibition kicked off Wednesday in Afghanistan's capital Kabul, which displayed a variety of traditional clothes, homemade foodstuff, and handicraft products.
The five-day show is organized by the Afghanistan Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AWCCI) to mark the end of Ramadan or fasting month and the upcoming Eid-al-Fitr Festival, Roya Hafizi, acting chairman of the AWCCI, told Xinhua.
According to Hafizi, more than 70 women-owned businesses from different provinces participated in the exhibition held in Shahrak-e-Aria, a residential complex near the Kabul International Airport.
"There are around 50 booths and many tables where nearly all of the companies are directly introduced by the Afghanistan Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Traditional clothes, handicrafts, jewelry as well as homemade foodstuff are among items put on display," she said.
Afghanistan will celebrate the Eid-al-Fitr festival on or around May 2, depending upon moon sightings. The show will wrap up on May 1.
