Indus Threads is the vision of Saadia Khan - a Silicon Valley technologist turned fashion entrepreneur, driven by a mission to make a global impact for women. By curating a collection of globally inspired accessories, Indus Threads aims to create a community that is inspired to empower and reflect the beauty, strength and individuality of every woman around the world.
Saadia is a passionate women's empowerment advocate and community builder. She helps women to dream big, embrace their unique story, use their voice & love their beautiful authentic self. She has impacted many women's lives globally through her instagram blog and #IamRemarkable and other personal development workshops.
In 2019, Saadia got an opportunity to visit the most rural and poverty stricken areas of Pakistan. She saw people living without basic necessities. But the one thing that really inspired her was the women she met - who were hard working, skilled artisans and driven to provide their families the best life they could while enabling them towards progress. She came back with a renewed perspective and a mission to help such skilled artisans and underprivileged women around the globe. Through Indus Threads, Saadia has committed that a percentage of every sale will go to impact partners, who are charities or NGOs working on the ground for women’s causes. A percentage of all sales go towards underprivileged women education, health and safety.
“An accessory is an important touch to one's final look and increases confidence and self-esteem. Pearls, crystals, tassels, velvet, silks, chains and brass are just some of the elements present in globally-inspired handcrafted creations.”
Outside work she loves to travel and spend time with family. Her passion for travel fuels her love of enjoying all cultures. Each one-of-a-kind piece at Indus threads tells a story and each collection has been inspired by one as well.
