Trip to Lahore's Textile Market

Mustafa Shaikh



At the end of last year I headed out to Pakistan to make sure our first production run got off on the right foot. During a down day I headed out to the Lahore textile market.

The place was gigantic. It was a maze of all these individual textile wholesalers—each of them slinging a wide array of fabric to people who were shopping for themselves. In Pakistan, it's not that strange to go out, pick out a fabric, and then take that fabric to a tailor to get clothes made. I suppose we could do that in the U.S., but the cost per garment would be pretty exorbitant.

I ended up picking up some fabric and bringing it back to our factory for some samples. You can check out some sights from my visit below.
