“I began Moonflowers Co as a celebration of women in Afghanistan, who harvest saffron with love. Born in Kabul, Afghanistan, now in DC, I wanted to share the story of resilience of Afghan women.
The workforce in the saffron industry of Afghanistan consists of 80% women, they plant, harvest and package the saffron spice. In a country where women do not have equal opportunities and rights, and have been suffering the most from war and oppression, their livelihoods depend on the saffron industry.
Thank you for supporting Moonflowers' mission to shine light on these women and the magic of saffron. Welcome to our family.
