Responsible and Sustainable Development

Humanist values, based in the artisan world, guide the brand in its development. The Misha Lakhani brand is committed to preserving age-old craft techniques, resources, and supporting the regions in which its artisans operate, ensuring the transmission of exceptional know-how passed on from generation to generation. The brand creates beautiful and functional pieces that can be repaired and passed down. The quality of the materials, combined with the exceptional know-how kept alive by its artisans, make for sustainable creations featuring timeless and effortless elegance.

Artisanal Techniques

In a bid to preserve handicraft practices, keeping its rich history alive, and empower local rural communities, our collections are built around themes showcasing the extraordinary skills of Pakistani artisans and the various techniques they employ. The mission at Misha Lakhani is to create works of art by combining unusual materials with ancient artistic techniques and to elevate the next generation of master craftsman. We have created an extensive library of research and development techniques for handloom weaving, tharkashi, cutwork, and traditional embroidery such as single aari and zardozi; reviving age-old techniques that were long forgotten. Each piece is a labor of love, with the final product being a culmination of years of craft wisdom and technical prowess that our team - in-studio and across the country - brings on board.
