Sustainable. Human. Engaged.
Who are we?
Bokhari consists of a total of over 450 women and men, in Pakistan and Norway. Creative director Runa Klock and general manager Amar Bokhari, together with warehouse manager Monica Breivik, handle all work in Norway, whereas all production takes place in Sultan Town, a suburb of Faisalabad in Pakistan. There, our skilled artisans, mostly women, make all our products. Our shared vision is to contribute to a more sustainable future for people and the planet.
An informal meeting in 2014 between designer Runa Klock and social entrepreneur Amar Bokhari was the basis for the restoration and continuation of the vision of creating unique handmade textile and interior products, and through that creating safe workplaces for women and men and schooling for their children – a work that was started over 30 years ago. Because the story of Bokhari goes all the way back to the end of the 1980s when the idea to produce the traditional Norwegian fillerya in Pakistan was conceived on a beautiful winter’s day at Maihaugen in Lillehammer.
This is how we work with the SDGs
Bokhari is inspired and guided by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the world’s joint work plan to eradicate poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change by 2030.
Through our responsible business model, we directly contribute to achieving several of these goals and indirectly to many more.
Don't take our word for it
At Bokhari, we work tirelessly to improve our ways of doing things, so that we can make even better products and contribute to improving the lives of our staff and their families – and by doing so contributing to a brighter future for all.
But don’t take our word for it.
