Meet Irshad

Md Irshad,33

A bag maker from Bihar



MD Irshad was only 12 years old when he first learnt tailoring and cutting work in Kolkata despite being unsure of learning the craft. However, he decided to hone the craft with a lot of commitment and today he can identify the pattern of any design just by looking at it.


He has been working with The Burnt Soul for seven years and describes it as his happy place. Irshad hails from a family of farmers in Bihar and now lives in Ghaziabad with his wife, kids and parents. He loves going out with his family, delights in eating Bihari food like Aloo ka Chokha and aspires to start his business one day.
