Tahmina (derived from the Persian word tahm, meaning strong & brave) is an international brand with a vision to export transformational products from different conflict areas of the world. We believe that economic development is one of the sustainable agents of change to war-torn societies, and that the call to bravery will overcome the history of fear in these nations. Our maiden project begins in Afghanistan with one of its best luxury items: saffron and saffron-infused teas. Tahmina seeks to connect local farmers with international markets, employ Afghan women, and help develop industries that can be alternatives to the illicit drug economy.
Who is behind Tahmina? We represent a collective of people who are passionate about activism and being the best in what we do. Our team is bi-located between Afghanistan and the US, and we are all part of a larger story of change in Afghanistan and change in conflict zones through the power of social enterprise.
