THE VEILED COLLECTION STORY
Why settle for clothing you don't love? Chances are your current wardrobe is nothing more than mere fabric...
Veiled Collection is a family-owned modest clothing line for the modern woman. It was founded by me, Nora and my mother in 2016.
Being a Muslim woman in the West, it became increasingly difficult to find trendy clothing that was both high quality and modest. Shops like Zara and Nordstrom were my go-tos but they always lacked something, whether cuts were to short or revealing or the price tag did not coincide with the quality of the garment. I decided I wanted to make a change to help myself and also help women around me who I knew were struggling with the same problems. I have always had a strong love for fashion and clothing, and I knew that I wanted to incorporate that with the teachings of Islam and the hijab. My mother had already owned a clothing workshop, and that is where we had designed our first few modest pieces for myself. Soon enough many of my friends and peers were complimenting these new pieces and asking where they could get them for themselves. That is when I knew there were girls who were struggling to find modest wear just like me, and long story short, Veiled Collection started.
We believe Islam should take hold not just in the way we dress, but in the way we conduct our business as well. Our mission is to make sure all of our customers are 100% satisfied with the way we do business - whether that is through our clothing, our email response, or customer service - we want to ensure that you have had an excellent experience with us. This is also why we are an ethical brand, producing our clothing in small batches and only employing local workers - we vouch not to fall into the "fast fashion" that the industry has turned into today. "So whoever does an atom's weight of good will see it." [Quran 99:7]. We are open to all suggestions, comments and concerns, so feel free to contact us anytime. May Allah guide us closer to Him every day, and forgive us of our wrong doings.
Dua'a to make when putting on new clothes:
"اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ كَسَوْتَنِيهِ، أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ خَيْرِهِ وَخَيْرِ مَا صُنِعَ لَهُ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّهِ وَشَرِّ مَا صُنِعَ لَهُ"
Allaahumma lakal-hamdu 'Anta kasawtaneehi, 'as'aluka min khayrihi wa khayri maa suni'a lahu, wa 'a'oothu bika min sharrihi wa sharri ma suni'a lahu.
O Allah, praise is to You. You have clothed me. I ask You for its goodness and the goodness of what it has been made for, and I seek Your protection from the evil of it and the evil of what it has been made for.
