Zakia Azam lives in Huriyan Basti near Bahawalpur. “Life is a mysterious journey full of all sort of encounters,” says Zakia baji. With no formal education and an early marriage, Zakia baji learnt the art of dress making and designing from her neighborhood female artisan. It’s been 30 years since she got married and started taking dress orders. Now her hand effortlessly weaves mukesh magic on fabric. Life caught Zakia baji by surprise as she relates with a heavy heart that it has been almost seven years since her husband passed away. The love her children helped her push through any setbacks and challenges. With Aangan, she wishes to unleash their dreams and share Bahawalpur’s authentic expression worldwide.
