Our Story

Our founding father Mr. Muhammad Abdullah started and nurtured his first spinning venture by the name of “Sharmeen Textile” in the 1950s in Dhaka, East Pakistan. Inspired and mentored by his father Muhammad Abdullah, Shahid Abdullah started his first venture outside Sindh in Lahore, which would become the first offshoot of Sapphire in the late 1970s and early 1980s as Sapphire Fibres.
