Up to the sea, she weaves a dream
ROYA MIBAFAD, TA ABIE DARYA
In any war, there is always a soldier who has lost and the women who are waiting for him to return. The dreams these women weave carry them to the farthest seas. Knowing there is no return, they weave and weave to treat the wounds of war.
