Details

Named after the 13th-century Persian poet, Jalal al-Din Rumi, Rumi Spice partners with Afghan farmers to bring top-quality, sustainably farmed saffron to customers around the world. Rumi began with a mission to cultivate peace in Afghanistan. Started by a team of US military veterans, Rumi sources saffron from local Afghan farms and employs more than 1900 women in Herat, Afghanistan to hand-harvest the delicate crimson stigmas of the flowers. Committed to empowering Afghan women and bolstering the country’s economy, Rumi reinvests back into agricultural and manufacturing infrastructure.
