- OUR STORY
Established in 2015, the story of Desert Rose Boutique began many years before in the vibrant City of Manchester, England - birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and once textile capital of the world. Our founder spent most of her childhood surrounded by rolls of colourful fabrics and trimmings of every sort one could imagine. The daughter of a garment manufacturer, she would often assist her father in his production unit and in doing so, furnished herself with basic skills in lay planning and cutting, garment pressing and finishing. Such experiences sparked her interest in fabrics, which developed further from observing her wonderfully talented mother (a qualified fashion designer, dressmaking teacher and accomplished seamstress) design and produce womenswear for the business as well as tailoring bespoke outfits for the family.
Inspired by her heritage and the desire to offer something different to style conscious Muslim women, the concept behind Desert Rose Boutique was born in 2008. However, it remained nothing more than a name for another six years whilst she pursued other wonderful and rewarding opportunities in the charity sector - another passion close to her heart. She finally returned to her roots in 2014 to work on the launch of Desert Rose Boutique. Tired of unoriginal and lack lustre options available in the market, she set about creating an accessories boutique fusing quality of craftsmanship with unique style, with a particular focus on creating bespoke hijabs exclusive to the brand.
Today, our collections are composed of beautiful pieces which finish off any outfit with style and grace, be it a timeless silk scarf, a statement jewellery piece or a chic evening clutch. Our accessories are worn by women of all faiths and none, celebrating individuality and style above anything else.
We hope you enjoy wearing your accessories as much as we enjoy bringing them to you. We are immensely grateful for all the support we have received so far and look forward to sharing more of our exciting collections with you in the future, God willing!
With much love and appreciation,
Desert Rose Boutique
