Turquoise Mountain: Bespoke Woodwork from Afghanistan

Turquoise Mountain: Bespoke Woodwork from Afghanistan

HRH The Prince of Wales established Turquoise Mountain in 2006 to revitalise historic areas and traditional crafts, as well as to provide jobs, skills, and a renewed sense of pride. Turquoise Mountain has since restored 150 historic buildings in Kabul's old city, trained over 6,000 artisans, treated nearly 136,000 patients at their clinic, and curated major international exhibitions at venues ranging from the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.

Through a major grant partnership, The Prince of Wales's Charitable Fund (PWCF) helps support the Turquoise Mountain Foundation in its restoration projects.

Turquoise Mountain was established in 2006 by HRH The Prince of Wales.

Their aim is to rebuild historic communities and generate incomes through heritage and craft.

They now support craftswomen and men in Afghanistan, Myanmar, and the Middle East.
