Feet weaving

Zohre Etezadolsaltaneh,49, weaves a kilim using her feet at her home in Tehran. Etezadolsaltaneh, a retired special education teacher, was born with no arms but lives the life of an independent woman who has been doing cooking, painting, weaving kilims and taking care for her mother who is a cancer patient. She gets $600 per month as pension from the government and lives by the mantra "To want is to succeed."
