Artistic Milliners, a global vertically integrated denim manufacturer from Pakistan, has launched Artmill, a new venture part of the Artistic Milliners portfolio.
The company’s newly established mill is the result of a period of strategic exploration and study of consumer trends and cutting-edge technology applied to woven fabrics.

The result of the survey has brought Artistic Milliners to find out that customers are increasingly looking for clothes that can be worn in a variety of occasions through a vast range of hybrid products that are versatile and performance driven.
“In the past few years, the expectation for comfort, performance, and aesthetic, all in a single item, has steadily risen. Artmill is ready to put horsepower behind the development of clothing that meets this moment,” explained Omer Ahmed, CEO of Artistic Milliners and Artmill.

The Artistic Milliners' portfolio of brands includes various different projects. The expanding of its suite of solutions began with Star Fades International (SFI), a Los Angeles-based facility that provides custom wash and finishing services to customers that range from large international retailers to niche luxury labels. Among other projects focused on increasing Artistic Milliners’ global footprint there are Artistic Energy, Artistic Lab, and Soho Incubator in New York.
