Neither side of Fahd's family had practiced bandhani for generations. His father began a bandhani business after his marriage. Fahd finished 10th standard and began a course in engineering, but his father needed help so he left it, and learned bandhani. Today, he manages his father's large workshop.

Bandhani has already gone a long way from traditional, Fahd says. Following his brother Talha, he took the SKV Design course to see where he could take it. He dreams of keeping his father's name for quality craft, and establishing a new name for himself and his brother. He created shoes for the SKV sequence at the 2017 Lakme Fashion Week, and participated in a Sangam international conference on narratives the same year.
