Farooq, 31, was born in Afghanistan. After learning machine embroidery at age 14, he starts working in factories and then in Kabul, for a tailor of traditional clothes.
At age 18, he is recruited by a British military base, where he must make badges for the soldiers’ uniforms. This work immediately puts him in danger: the Taliban threaten his life and he is forced to leave Afghanistan.
In 2015, after a long journey, he arrives in Paris where he meets Nina, 28, a designer born in France. Together, they decide to launch their own brand: we came from.
