Maria B is a brand that has huge retail presence in Pakistan, the UK and now in India as well. The designer has been working with Indian textile company Sahiba for over a year now, and while Sahiba imports and distributes Maria Bâ€™s embroidered silk range (that is manufactured in Pakistan), the textile manufacturer prints and retails Maria B collections in lawn and linen in India itself.
