INSPIRATION

Present-day Pakistan is home to several ancient cultures, including Mehrgarh, and the Indus civilization at Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa. Over centuries, this land has absorbed the vital energies of Buddhism, Hinduism, and a mystical Islamic tradition. It has served as a crucible to historic trade routes, and as a majestic center to craft in the region.

It is this experience of Pakistan that I bring to New York, with the launch of Guru. My products bear witness to a legacy of artisans and their labor, surviving against all duress. So with great pride, and a sense of excellence, I share with you my richly woven heritage. This is the world of Guru.
