“I started learning this skill when I was ten. My first ustad was Abdul Wajid in Guldara area of Peshawar. Since then I am working with my elder brother, not only a skilled artisan but a gold trader as well”. Said 21 years old Muhammad Amir, a young artisan, who was busy drawing designs on surahi. Located in the Andershehr area, gold and silver bazar, the market of our products is limited and most of our orders are customized said Muhammad Amir. “It is a hard work and requires time and dedication” he said.
Product lines include Surahi (jug), Katori (Bowls), Chainak (teapot), cheelum (pipe), qalamdan (inkstand), and boxes.
