I live in Karachi, known to be one of the most dangerous cities in the world. I own a design house with retail outlets in Karachi and Lahore and export my creations all over the world. But my inspiration starts here and I want to write about it.
Amidst the chaos that comes with a city of the sub continent I find inspiration for my work. I want to write about what captures my attention in Karachi or wherever I travel to in person or virtually and show you glimpses of how my world translates into the products I design and the paintings I make. I also love food, cooking, gardening, collecting antiques and of course travelling. I will start by introducing The Craft Company.
This is a mobile pouch we embroidered and beaded showing a girl on a scooter.
This is a sight you will never see in Karachi because social norms do not allow girls to own or use scooters or cycles. I hope more people can get used to seeing women on scooters in Karachi and not only as passengers. To read more about this sad phenomenon follow this link Motorcycle Diaries.
