I was very fortunate to get a chance to pick up a few handicrafts from Pakistan on my visit to Islamabad. I was very happy to see a government handicraft shop at the Pakistan Monument with crafts from all over Pakistan. This post is dedicated to the skilled artisans of Pakistan who despite their many talents are striving to make ends meet.
These are hand carved brass ornaments made in the city of Multan. The work is intricate and beautifully done.
Also from Multan comes their famous pottery, hand made and painted with the dominant color of blue.
This is a jewelry box and earrings made in silver and stones.
Lastly this is a replica of a “riksha” a three wheeler used for public transport in many areas of Pakistan. Rikshas are actually this colorful!
