Shaherazad Umbreen receiving her Exporter of the Year award

A Lichfield businesswoman has won an award for her company’s exporting prowess.

Shaherazad Umbreen’s Shoes by Shaherazad was named Exporter of the Year at the National Small Medium Enterprise Awards in London.

Judges branded her entry “outstanding” thanks to the global reach of the company’s products.

Shaherazad said: “The uncertainty caused by Brexit hasn’t dampened the world’s appetite for British made product,” she said.

“I had a dream of empowering women by providing heels that not only looked good but were also good for their feet and comfortable to wear. Many business women are now working longer hours and we want to look good without having to suffer for it.

“I’m exporting my shoes to countries all over the world, including Germany, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Canada, the USA and Singapore.”
