Nagina Group is a Pakistani conglomerate company which is based in Lahore, Pakistan. It manufactures a wide variety of textile products.

The company was founded in 1972 by Inam Ellahi Shaikh and Ashan Ellahi Shaikh. Nagina Cotton/Yarns (a subsidiary of Nagina Group) was listed by Forbes magazine as among the best-performing-companies with less than US $1 billion in revenue in 2003.[2][1][3]


The Nagina Group began as a single company, Nagina Mills Limited, established by Shaikh Inam Ellahi and Ashan Ellahi Shaikh in 1967.[4] Focusing on the production of cotton yarn, it grew with the acquisition of tanneries, factories that produced shoes and ice, and Pakistan's largest jute mill. These assets were lost, however, when East Pakistan separated from the Pakistani Federation to become Bangladesh in 1971. In 2006, Managing Director of Nagina Group, Shafqat Ellahi Shaikh was elected Chairman of All Pakistan Textile Mills Association.[5]
