Embroiderers

It's amazing what people can do here by hand! 

This is a man embroidering a shirt or shawl, using the little beads and thread to do so. The work is so intricate and he's doing everything by hand. I could never do this work! People love embroidered clothes here, so this is a very common thing actually.

I'm sure these days these guys are busy, as on holiday's everyone always wears a new outfit, shoes, jewelry and everything else. This is a new thing for me, because I have never liked spending money on clothes, nor have I cared about wearing new things on special days (except maybe my birthday), but here, it's a big deal. 

I'm sure the shirt above was probably for an extremely special event, like a wedding. And I'm sure it was really expensive, too.
