Mohammad Muneem- Expressing through melodies

 Singing happened to me when I wanted to express what I wrote. I wanted someone to sing the words I wrote but no one was really interested.

It’s never too late to learn new things or make a new start. If we could, so can you. That is the message we want to give to the women of the Valley.''

Omaira Binish - Colorful Creations in Crochet

     Even though we were and are teachers, we knew fabric painting and crochet and loved doing it together. Not being trained from any design institute, we improved our skills mainly through online tutorials. What started making stuff for home, gradually gained popularity among our immediate circle of friends and relatives and it was then that we started receiving orders for our work, though on a very small scale. With the passage of time, requests started pouring in and it was then that the concept of CraftWorld Kashmir flashed in our minds. Soon we realized that many people were selling their skills through social media and we decided to use these platforms to grow our business. The initial investment was very low, almost negligible, as our products were made to order.
