During the fair established relations with each other, exchanged experiences. People, mostly foreigners, show great interest in our products. But we not only sell, but also tell about the importance of a particular item or utensils», - said the craftsman from Astana, a participant of the project Gaukhar Mukhamedieva.
Here, for example, she met oralmans from China, which is engaged in embroidery.
«She did not know how and to whom to sell her products. And I, for example, sew bags and I would very much like to decorate them with such ornaments. We can cooperate with her in this direction», - she said.
