Founder & Visioner of Alokia
Noshin Khan first got the motivation of Alokia when she saw beautiful handcraft blankets made by rural women of Bangladesh. She realized that they produce high quality products and has the capacity to make more if there were demands. Prices they received for their work was really low and didn’t contribute towards improving their livelihood. So Noshin came up with the idea of working with some of these women from a small town of Bangladesh and gathered them to form Alokia. At the initial stage, she started with 4 others but now Alokia has a team of 7 inspiring women who dreams of living a better life through Alokia’s success.
