Beautiful picture of Dates trees.Their peak season is summer.


Sweet and delicious dates.Most popular fruit in Sindh ,My province .


This is called Ja-Nimaz ,Muslims use it to offer prayers 5 times a day.It is also a beautiful craft made by dried leaves of date trees.


It is a local handfan also made by leaves and branches of Date trees.


It is a local craft used in many parts of pakistan and india for keeping wheat bread has various names in various areas we call it "Pindi" Made by the same leaves of Date trees.



Women of rural areas use their spare time also making these kind of beautiful bed sheets known as" rilli" in our area .It is made by joining thousands of peaces of colorful clothes in various designs.

  3. Lovely handicrafts! Similar handicrafts can also be found here in our country, in Muslim region which is the Mindanao.. But I've never seen a hand fan like that one...It actually made me think on how to use that kind because the handle is on the side, very similar to a flag-let. What we have here is the one who has a handle at the bottom.
    Thanks for sharing these dear.
