Telling Kashf Foundation’s story, one stitch at a time
The story of Kashf Foundation there is a very little outfit about a dhol. There was a time when this Foundation was being shut down; everything for them becomes completely closed. I asked them how they brought it back. After that they bought up back and said hum dhol lay ke aik aik village ke paas jatay thay aur dhol bajatay thay ‘Kashf wapas aa gaya, Kashf wapas aa gaya‘. All of these stories come from journey and mind of Roshaneh. As a designer she has to interpret it.
HSY aka Sheru said he really had no idea at the time when Kashf initially approached them about what they wanted.
