About Me

I’m Nasir Mahmud, an expert in fashion and imported fabrics. Born in Pakistan, I attended Stony Brook University in New York and concentrated my career in the textile industry. My passion for quality fabrics, means you will leave inspired and excited to bring your purchases to life as a fashion statement.

My Store

Take a look around my store and you'll find out who I am, what I believe in. We all have a passion. This is mine! 

After Stony Brook University, I worked in the production and sales of finished garments in stores such as TJ Max and Ross. Since 2003, I have been buying and selling imported Italian fabric. 

My Customers

It excites me when my customers walk through my door. From an early age, I decided to master my craft and I’ve been learning ever since. Without my customers, I wouldn't be where I am today. They come here from all areas of Florida and beyond to shop and take classes at Pennie Fabrics.
