How It Started

Founded in the summer of 2012 as a postcard company, From Lahore With Love was launched with the main aim of celebrating Lahore, by paying homage to the sights that make up Pakistan’s glorious city of gardens.

Thought-Nymph

Who knows,
She may come at last,
On the crest of a wave,
Hidden in a leaf,
In the song of a bird,
In this unquiet house,
Or in the dawn’s cosmic splendour,
And when I meet her,
I may be able to say,
That which I once said,
On a morning like this,
In a strange town,
To another stranger in Lahore.
