Embroidering the Shawl

 In the upper room of a wooden house nearby, two young men wearing nearly identical dark brown pherans  were involved in another textile craft. Hunched slightly over, one man stitched in yet another color of a highly detailed embroidery border on a shawl. The other, equally engrossed in his work, worked on an all–over embroidery design. An older gray-bearded  gentlemen came in and was identified by my friend as the master embroidery person.  His eyes too weak to embroider, he still was able to guide the young men on the overall design.
