What better way to foster team spirit and friendship than with handmade, fair trade soccer balls? Afghan women have been renowned for centuries for hand needlework. Now the women of DOSTI, meaning “friendship” in Dari, have harnessed that heritage to handcraft club-quality fair trade soccer balls. Each ball is sturdily hand-stitched using 32 panels of highest quality synthetic leather producing soccer balls with superior bounce and shape. Bearing DOSTI’s signature Doves in Flight pattern, each fair trade soccer ball purchased provides meaningful employment for Afghan women. DOSTI is a Bpeace project.
