I've always been intrigued by the cultures along the ancient Silk Road. Their traditions and heritage cultivate a strong sense of honor and humility.
This can be seen in the craftsmanship of the items sold here on this site, a living history of trades passed down from one generation to the next.
My dual Japanese and Pakistani heritage undoubtedly fed that intrigue and love of the Silk Road cultures.
Thus Asran was born, a way to share some traditions with you.  - Saadia Nasir-Ricart
