I came accross this beautiful top by just scrolling through instagram earlier this afternoon, and the top happened to be made from the famouse Palestinian keffiyeh fabric. The fabric is usually used to make scarves, that the military men wear, and religious men from the Muslim world wear. But somewhere down the line someone had a genius idea to make this beautiful scarf fabric into clothing.
Namely a new emerging brand called: Cecilie Copenhagen
Well, we had to put our two cents in by jumping on board to assemble some keffiyeh threads of our own, with a twist. The fabric is so chic and unique, that the style pair ups are endless.
Have a look at what we put together:
Paired with some leather barefoot shoes.
We will be featuring the most fabulous leather socks on the market this coming Spring Summer season to join our Thaqafah collection.
Leather socks are comfortable and wisks away sweat in your feet as you wear them.
Leather socks have been worn for centuries if not thousands of years, by nations throughout history. The Japanese leather socks are called Tabi and the Arab or “Muslim” leather socks are called khuffs (sock in Arabic ).
If you are into earthing, minimalism,comfortability, or just down right fashion, then our socks will be perfect for you. They have made their way on the runways of Milan and now they will be available for all who would like to sport them.
They will be featured in an array of colors and styles throughout the seasons. They can be worn indoor or outdoors, depending on surface (I wouldn’t recommend rock climbing in them).
Follow us to be notified when purchase will be available, and feel free to ask any questions concerning this new collection of socks.
So we finally got the design worked out for the peshawari sandals. I didn’t share this before, but the first pair of peshawaris that were constructed were square at the toe and they looked too manly.
For those who don’t know, these sandals are worn by men in India and Pakistan, but for the first time they have been styled for women in a feminine way.
Others have tried, but the sandals still have that square toe that makes it look exactly the men’s sandals.
Our collection will come in a pleasant array of colors and beautiful stitching, and will be ready for purchase as soon as they arrive.
Tell us what you think ladies and gents, and it will be greatly appreciated
Soooooo, turns out that Tunisia also has babouche that they produce as well. I have to tell you that these nations have some of the flyest footwear in the world. Right up there with Turkey, Spain, India,Italy, Portugal, and Mexico, in my shoe making masters book.
The designer world has been scoping and copying these styles for years, and it’s time to introduce them to the world at large for who and what they are and come from.
That is what Thaqafah is all about, aiding the artisans of these countries to bring the old with a new modern twist, along with keeping the shoes trendy without compromising tradition and quality.
Love love these shoes (la sigh).
Hey listen, I don’t know about anyone else but we can’t get enough of the moroccan babouche. They are elegant, colorful, unique, diverse,and just down right funky man!
We have some custom made babouche on their way straight from Fez Morocco handmade by some skilled artisans with generational knowledge of footwear and years of experience.
We have put our own personal spin on them though, which we will post once they arrive………..
Ok so we came accross these beautiful Moroccan shoes/ballet flats. They are absolutely geogeous and look very comfortable indeed. We have got to get to Morocco and see their souk and bazaar.
I hear that the craftsmanship that they put in their shoes are totally amazing. I need to see it in person in order to get the full affect….#travelgoals
