@QurratFilms Qurat-ul-Aain I watched another short documentary you made about Balouchi kaam. I am from the US and of Pakistani origin and it is wonderful to know there are people out there trying to document this priceless art. I would encourage you to film and document this heritage so it is not lost with time. Pakistan has such a versatile embroidery industry, I wish I had your talents and resources to document it all and write a book about the hand embroidery of Pakistan
