Electric Bazaar is an ethical fashion social enterprise based in the North West, UK, which was founded in July 2017 by Shamima and Alicya. It was born out of a passion for designing clothes that give talented artisans the recognition they deserve, whilst preserving the rich art of handicrafts from the Subcontinent.

We design in-house limited-edition clothing pieces which are modest-friendly, incorporating the embroidery styles and handicrafts of the different regions in Pakistan.

VISION

We envision a fashion industry that shifts away from the exploitative nature of fast fashion and has a positive impact on the people and communities associated with its activities.

mission

We seek to support an inclusive economy empowering low-income, highly skilled garment workers and artisans to earn a sustainable livelihood that benefits themselves, their families and their communities - where talent is valued at the heart of their work.
  • When sourcing fabric and embroidery patches in Pakistan we only partner with small, locally producing makers

  • Combating exploitative labour by providing fair wages to the artisans we employ

  • Preserving slow fashion processes by using local handicraft techniques and skills as part of all our designs

  • Empowering women by providing a source of income-generation so they can earn a livelihood and achieve economic independence 

  • All of our packaging is eco-friendly and made out of recycled or recyclable materials

You can also browse our pieces on Etsy and Depop or if you're around Manchester we're also based in the Want Not Waste shop at The University of Manchester Students' Union. Occasionally we hold stalls at Craft & Flea and The Makers Markets across the North. Follow us on Instagram, Twitter and like our page on Facebook to find out which location we'll be at next!
