The Ethical Fashion Initiative (EFI) has been working in Afghanistan since 2018 to help get farmers back on their feet following decades-long conflict. Its aim is to create sustainable jobs and wealth, particularly for displaced and returnee Afghans, with the financial support of the European Union.
Together with the EFI we hope to empower farmers and social enterprise employees, while contributing to more ethical and sustainable agricultural value chains.
“We have always been committed to creating value chains that put people and nature before profit. Now our community can enjoy the unique luxury of saffron, and get to know the women and men in Afghanistan who nurture the saffron crocuses, pick the delicate flowers and extract their precious ‘red gold’.”
Wunder founder, Zoe Lind van’t Hof
We asked some of the women in Afghanistan, who harvest the saffron crocuses, to share their favourite ways to use Saffron at home, and Malina shared with us her Saffron rice from which Alexandra formulated her beautiful menu.
