It started when Noman Banka, who happened to be a leather jacket enthusiast, got a chance to observe the industry while his stay in the UK.
“I saw high-end brands selling jackets at crazy retail prices. When they cost a quarter of it and the craftsmen were paid next to nothing. It was then that I decided to do something about it.” Noman Banka recalled.
Fast forward a couple years Noman got back from England to Karachi, Pakistan. A city famous worldwide for its business. He observed that the jackets he saw in London manufactured here at really low costs but the creators never got to see a fraction of the money it made. Courtesy of middlemen margins and heavy marketing campaigns.
“The fact that the profit-sharing-ratio with the craftsmen was the lowest, gave me jitters” He further added.
We source everything locally, playing our part in helping the local industry and keeping the carbon footprint our products low. All our products are long lasting and our packaging recycled and reusable.
We spend less on marketing and let our customers buy custom made, handcrafted leather jackets at affordable price marks, but will also share the fruit with the craftsmen.
Our core values are driven by our commitment to provide the best quality to our customers, improving the lives of the people who work with us. Operating at a high standard of ethical integrity, creating business channels that aim at the revival of craftsmanship and challenge the status quo high-end brands.
PREMIUM QUALITY TOP GRAIN LEATHER
To create a leather jacket that can stand the test of time, we acquire premium quality leather from the best tanneries in the world..
Top Grain is the refined version of full grain. It’s sanded and refinished to remove scars and scrapes from the animal’s hide to give it a uniform, smooth and soft look. Top grain leather is ideal for jackets because it offers a sleek look and is softer and more stain resistant than full grain. Top Grain, in other words, is a guarantee of unmatched finish, smooth feel and wear of a lifetime.
