Afshan Abbas

Fuchsia Shoes Inc
Founder
In 2012, Afshan Abbas was traveling to her home town in Pakistan when she stumbled upon native handmade shoes in a farmer's market. She brought the shoes back to Seattle and was stunned by the overwhelmingly positive reaction she received on her discovery in Seattle. This led her to research on the craft industry in Pakistan and learned about the issues the native artisans face in making a living through their craft. That was the moment when Afshan's entrepreneurial spirit emerged and Fuchsia Shoes was born. 

Afshan is a University of Washington's Alumni and moved to Seattle in 2007 when Microsoft hired her as a software developer. She loves traveling, especially to remote parts of the world and is passionate about bringing economic development in developing countries, paving a way for gender-balanced communities.
