Khalil Ahmed, owner of Johra & Bohra Handicrafts, started his wire crafting business out of necessity 8 years ago. He and his 3 brothers faced hardship after their family farm was not able to support their kid's education or necessities for their families.
After learning about the fair trade model, the brothers partnered with an NGO to start their business and they have been able to receive steady work ever since. The NGO continues to ensure that artisans are paid fairly and work in good conditions. Khalil now employs 10 people and runs his own workshop.
Behind every Mira Fair Trade product is a traditional artform and an artisan's story. Techniques are passed down between generations and throughout families. Be apart of their story! Read more about each technique by following the link below.
