Livestock—in respect of flesh, wool, manure, and hide—contribute a great deal to the agriculture-based economy of Chitral, northern Pakistan. Meat is sold like a hot cake and butchers visit remote villages to buy cattle to meet the meat requirements of the people. Thus livestock as a source of income generation is expanding. People keep quality sheep to acquire wool for Chitral Patti in consideration of its high market value. It is a hard job for women to prepare the fabric, every step of which calls for traditional expertise ranging from carding and spinning to colouring and weaving.
