That’s how Sumaiya described her vision on her website. For anyone who is interested in good quality clothing with an indian touch, Sumaiya Merchant might be the perfect brand for you. Sumaiya knew how to mix between the Tunisian and Indian culture in order to create something out of the box and yet simple and chic that could perfectly fit into anyone’s wardrobe.
“Hungry for creation my young hands cried, Only to the needle, thread, fabric, it opened wide…” but that’s not the most mesmerizing aspect, Sumaiya is known for her passion for embroidery and her knowledge on how to construct a garment which led her to create a brand with completely in-house creations (hand-made) that are customized to fit customers vision and to reflect their personality and collaborating with various artisans.
