We're redefining the meaning of waste by using it for a better & liveable tomorrow. We utilize industrial waste, sugar cane pulp, thrown tetra packs & similar leftovers to produce eco-friendly paper which is biodegradable & acid-free in nature. It’s highly absorptive and rich-in-textures & capable of tie-&-dye. Because we don't wish to see the trees in our museums.
I always believed that a good name is better than riches & for a reason Thoughts and Imaginations were always riveting and they felt as natural to me as breathing. I was mocked for my idea of using waste as raw material But my passion led me to this soul-satisfying venture of mine; Warq-Al-Qadeem.
I am a Mechanical engineer-to-be. Allow me to venture out and introduce myself in a non-traditional way. I was once asked to write the chapter title/headings of the book of “my passion” – if such a book were written. The title was supposed to be War-Al-Qadeem.
I was born and raised in Pakistan. I have done Masters in Business Analysis. I believe the key to occupational happiness is to first figure out what you’re passionate about and then find a job that matches this passion. My passion for social entrepreneurship took me to Warq-Al-Qadeem.
I have done MBA in Finance and later my passion turned me into an artist.I strive to make beautiful art pieces. There is no implied complex meaning or desire to use garbage as raw material. This thought compelled me to be a part of Warq-Al-Qadeem & I want to pull the viewer into the world I create.
My name is Munawwar Hussain, and I consider myself to be an entrepreneur. I think my parents have other names for it, but I’ll go with entrepreneur. Coming out of college with a degree in MBA-marketing, I didn't had an opportunity to change directions,I finally grab it after meeting Warq-Al-Qadeem.
We launched our prototype and managed to sell custom products of worth US$ 10,000 to various individuals and corporations in Pakistan.
