Place of security. Space of development — changing with contextual needs. Sometimes a courtyard for community feast, another time a playground, or workstation, or site for teachings, or an exhibition venue. Aangan, the courtyard is what the Rural Pakistani Artisans make.

Aangan is an online platform created with, by and for female artisans in Pakistan, to sell their handcrafted apparel and lifestyle products. Within the handmade artifacts lie stories of courageous women who are constantly stitching new possibilities for themselves, their families and their community.

Come receive the gifts, an expression of authenticity, self-acceptance and belonging. Become interwoven into the social fabric interlocking households.
