They have a website for online shopping as well. Their collections include various hijabs, but also tops and dresses that everyone can wear.

Owners Huda Lully and Selma Selb are art-enthusiasts who found the existing range of hijabs and modest wear “boring” and too plain to express their personalities when they started wearing headscarves. So they combined forces to create this unique modern hijab clothing brand in 2015. With the help of Selb's fashion degree and textile background, as well as Lully's fine arts degree and artistic nature, they built a successful brand. True to form, every piece of clothing they sell is a piece of art- literally! “Every piece of print is unique on its own because the process of making is always different. We paint, splatter, sketch, ink, drip, sponge, and techniques keep evolving,” says Lully. This is an awesome place for the young Muslimahs to find modest wear that is bright, interesting and unique to make that selfie stand out!
