Meet the Maker
Kishmish is a Bay Area-based paper goods and candle company founded by Zareen Abbasi and Fatima Aslam. As a WOC-owned and led business, the Kishmish mission is rooted in preserving South Asian culture and celebrating identity through our senses. What started with a handful of punny greeting cards has cascaded into an eclectic brand with a diverse collection of wall art, stationary, gifts, and soy wax candles inspired by scent profiles uniquely inherent to the South Asian subcontinent. The duo is committed to ensuring their candles are free of harsh chemicals, 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and hand poured in small batches for quality and longevity.
