Noorjehan Bilgrami, a pioneer in the preservation of the craft traditions in Pakistan, established KOEL in 1977, primarily to revive the hand-block printing craft which by then had almost ceased to exist.
Apart from hand-block printing, KOEL carried out high quality hand-embroidery and other embellishments on fabric, setting high standards to create a unique niche in the up-market fashion apparel sector in Pakistan.
KOEL has diversified from textiles into the design, production and marketing of furniture. KOEL produces exclusive apparel and home furnishings from natural-dyed hand-loom cottons, silks and wool.
KOEL Productions, a subsidiary of KOEL, is committed to the revival of the crafts in Pakistan by bringing public awareness and promoting the different crafts nationally and internationally through the electronic media.
KOEL Publications, another subsidiary of KOEL, is a Publishing House that has been publishing books on the arts and crafts of Pakistan.
