Hazara dress and embroidery from Afghanistan

V&A South Kensington
Cromwell Road,
London, United Kingdom
Apr 14, 2024 To Apr 14, 2025


Detail: Afghanistan has always been home to many peoples and cultures. The Hazara people speak Hazaragi, a language related to Persian, and make up the third largest ethnic group in the country. In the past, they lived in many areas of Afghanistan. But today, many have been displaced and they continue to face persecution. In the face of hostility, embroidery and dress help to maintain a sense of communal identity for the Hazara people, both in Afghanistan and among diaspora communities. The vibrant examples in this display reveal the technical and design skills of the Hazara dressmakers and embroiderers.
