Synopsis

Just after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, Harriet Sandys set off for Peshawar to see for herself the plight of the thousands of Afghan refugees. Over the next fifteen years she would travel alone across the Middle East sourcing textiles for her business and starting a silk weaving project for refugees in Afghanistan who she still supports today. She is now a world-renowned authority on silk ikat and oriental carpets.
