Who are we?

Nasheman is an ethical slow fashion label founded by Waqar J Khan in 2019. The brand focuses on the preservation of crafts, where each garment is hand-crafted by artisans in rural communities across Pakistan. Through the use of organic materials, natural dyes and traditional techniques, we are one of the few providers of sustainable, contemporary fashion in Pakistan.

Why do we matter?

We believe that fashion should not only look good, but also be good. Embodying a slow fashion attitude, each garment is ethically designed to be functional, comfortable and most of all – timeless. Discover the stories behind our crafts and learn more about the ecological impact of our clothing.
