Why You'll Love This Brand

We love Tahmina's mission of bringing positive change to Afghanistan and other parts of the world, by creating opportunities for employment and helping develop industries such as saffron. Saffron is internationally recognized as the world's most expensive spice, and is not only treasured in culinary and medical traditions, with numerous health benefits, but can also be used in tea, dye, fragrance, and more. Afghanistan's saffron has been named the best in the world, and the industry has immense potential to replace opium farming and help rebuild the Afghan economy. Additionally, 80% of the labor can be done by women, creating new economic opportunities and empowering many women who could not find employment elsewhere.

Tahmina (derived from the Persian word tahm, meaning strong and brave) is an international brand with a vision to export transformational products from different conflict areas of the world, with the belief that economic development is one of the sustainable agents of change. Their maiden project begins in Afghanistan with one of its best luxury items: saffron and saffron-infused teas. Tahmina seeks to connect local farmers and women with international markets, and help develop industries that can be alternatives to the illicit drug industry.
