What prompted you to launch Magpie Crafts. What is the ideology behind it?
Magpie Crafts was created to provide more sustainable options to people and to create an awareness about the environment and its concerns.
It was launched as a response to our general inability to do much regarding the growing environmental concern. We often feel helpless as we don’t have much control over bringing improvements beyond our own capacity of making sustainable choices.
How would you describe the experience of starting your own business in Pakistan? Any advice for young entrepreneur's like yourself?
It is difficult to figure out how to start any project or business but reaching out to the right platforms, such as Haryali, and getting in touch with other small businesses to share ideas and get advice really helps.
I’m so thrilled that small businesses and entrepreneurs are now emerging more rapidly in Pakistan and bringing fresh ideas. We must create a team who supports each other as it is not easy to find information on most things.
You learn a lot from other people and their experiences.
