Zarif is a collection produced in Kabul where the brand currently employs and trains 52 local Afghan women and men, practicing ‘slow’ production in the form of hand-crafted work and detailing. Worn by the likes of Kate Hudson, Marina Abramovic, Agnes B, and Shirin Neshat, this is a cutting edge brand. 

They source traditional fabrics from Afghanistan and Central Asia - The Silk Road - fostering fair-trade practices and the use of natural dyes. These are truly artisan-made goods with a mission to advance development while preserving Afghanistan's history.
