Hayaat - Grey


We live our lives in moments. We try to hold onto bubbles of our happiest moments and ask ourselves “What if I could just stay here a little while longer?” 

But in doing so, we end up trapped within our own potential. We begin to neglect the endless possibilities that lie before us, the opportunities at the tip of our fingers. All within reach if we just take that one step out of our little bubble and into the unknown that lies before us. 

Hayaat is an ode to Mir Taqi Mir with his timeless piece of work across the border encouraging the reader to live their lives to the fullest with the blank canvas lying in the middle of the shawl.

An Ode To Mir Taqi Mir

بارے دنیا میں رہو غم زدہ یا شاد رہو ایسا 
کچھ کر کے چلو یاں کہ بہت یاد رہو
 عشق پیچے کی طرح حسن گرفتاری ہے
لطف کیا سرو کی مانند گر آزاد رہو
ہم کو دیوانگی شہروں ہی میں خوش آتی ہے
دشت میں قیس رہو کوہ میں فرہاد رہو
 وہ گراں خواب جو ہے ناز کا اپنے سو ہے 
داد بیداد رہو شب کو کہ فریاد رہو
 میرؔ ہم مل کے بہت خوش ہوئے تم سے پیارے
اس خرابے میں مری جان تم آباد رہو
میر تقی میر

Every day we make around 35,000 decisions (this is legitimate according to science), and you must have noticed that as the day goes by, our capability and willpower of making these decisions become poor.

How much time have you spent trying to decide what to wear or what to watch by the end of the day?

Many smart people have now started to streamline the daily repetitive decisions by making a diet schedule or by limiting their wardrobe to what usually suits their style, comfort and personality in order to reduce the decision fatigue as much as possible.

On the other side, there’s a literal bombardment of “fast-fashion” trends that come and go each month, pushing us to get on with the hype of a quickly changing concept of “new collection.”

When we subconsciously make the decision to keep filling our wardrobes with more and more clothes, the daily decision making of what to wear becomes even more difficult & time consuming.

Yes, dressing up sometimes is fun, but being confused about what to wear all the time is not!

When I faced this situation in my life, I realized that most successful people around the world look great while keeping themselves up to date with their own style. I realized I may never win the race of always chasing what the trend is but rather I need to build a style for myself that can be worn every day.

I created a tiny section in my wardrobe of daily wear, and as the Lucknowi Kurta Pyjama has been the most comfortable piece of clothing for me, that’s where it all started.

I wanted a set of apparel & accessories which were basic, but not boring.
Something that would work in my perfect & not-so-perfect moments.
Something I could put on while making art, or while I was doing my day job.
Basically, Clothes for Real Life.

Hence, Wear Manto was born.


Our focus is to create products that don’t only look good on the surface, but have a practical and comfortable experience while they’re being worn.

We will definitely keep infusing creative art into our collections, as “art” is the soul of Wear Manto, but we will never push you to keep shopping new trends every other month.

Art is supposed to last forever, not for just a couple of days.

Our Basic Collections Will Always Be Available, While Some Accessories & Limited Collections To Add Life To Our Basics May Come And Go.

Just get the things that inspire and excite you.
(consume less, confuse less)
