Stride in Style | Tamashee

Tamashee evolves traditional Arabian footwear to a fashionable product that appeals to you. The Tamashee team creates  footwear  that revolves around design and quality. They travelled the world to collaborate with the finest designers, pattern drafters and manufacturers of Europe and the Middle East. Through this colourful collaboration, the Tamashee brand came to life. The Tamashee designs are so unique and so Arabic – a rarity these days inspite of the designer buzz in the Middle East these days.  Footwear designs that embrace the Arabic tradition and designs in a very trendy and classy manner is yet to be seen – that’s exactly why Tamashee caught my eyes.

Here’s what inspired them to start this wonderful journey:

Kay: Thank you for taking the time to do the interview with us. At what point did you figure out “We want to design footwear?” Tamashee: Firstly, what is important to note is how we decided to get into footwear. Initially, we sat down as a team and listed three social causes that are dear to us. These were: Preserving identity, representing culture and colouring lives. Preserving identity: All Tamashee co-founders have studied and worked abroad and we felt the need to do something to preserve our identity. Representing culture: It was important for us to show how amazing ‘Khaleeji’ fashion and culture can be. Colouring lives: We wanted a social arm to whatever we do. Once we put these three causes down, we thought that the best way to combine them was through fashion. We particularly thought that the traditional Arabian Gulf sandal is the best route for us given its fashionable appeal.

 Kay: What are your criteria for well-constructed and well-designed shoes?

Tamashee: We designed the Tamashee sandals to be classy, comfortable, vibrant and fashionable. We wanted to create a wonderful piece of footwear that can resonate throughout the world and help us achieve our three social causes.

Kay:  Do you have a footwear motto?

Tamashee: Not a motto, but we believe is important to make a statement through footwear but it does not have to be just a fashion statement. It is important that footwear be expressive of important social causes as well.

Kay: How did you come up with the name ‘Tamashee”? And also, how do you name each pair?

Tamashee: The Tamashee team has modernized a traditional sandal to make it compatible with today’s world, compatible with all dress types and simultaneously supporting a social cause that encourages compatibility. That’s why we chose the word Tamashee, inspired by the Arabic words for walking and compatibility. Naming of Tamashee sandals pertains to the theme of collection. Our Pre-SS14 collection is inspired by the theme of art. Therefore the sandal names are actually art terms, for example: Composition, Hue, Abstract, Pigment, etc…

Kay:  If someone is interested in ordering one of your pieces from Tamashee, what advice can you give them about selecting style and colour?

Tamashee: Thankfully our product has appealed to customers from a variety of regions (e.g. Europe, Western Africa, South East Asia, USA, Levant region) in addition to the GCC. It has appealed to people across different age groups and clothing styles.  So to be honest this is a difficult question since our customer base is diverse.

Kay: What projects do you have planned for the future?

Tamashee: We’d like to keep it as a surprise 🙂 We have some interesting ideas in planning.

Kay: Thank you for giving me the chance to do this wonderful in-depth interview. Tamashee have now launched their online store. IF you would like to own one of their collections hope on here!

The wind was strong, the water wild, but there was peace as we watched the sun go down.
Peace that only nature could provide with.
And, it was the most relaxing scene to watch.
A beautiful experience for me.

LIMITLESS SKIES
Pushing myself to do better everyday is one thing I have always done for myself.
I have believed that the only limit you have around is dependent on what you place yourself in.
How beautiful is this view? From an excursion taken during my stay in the @sholacrownmunnar

N E W  P H O N E  C O V E R @caseartsI love colors, painting, art, and so many things. I am sure I cant make a list of what I like here because its never ending. I have been following @inkstruckstudio 's beautiful artworks and blog.
She has a free downloadable wallpaper up on her blog every month. Very pretty ones!
And, I fell in love with the one in October like every other work of hers.
When @casearts came to me - (they give you printed mobile cover designs of your choice.)
I had no idea what I wanted as my mobile cover.
And, then when I saw Zakkiya's wallpaper I decided that this wallpaper would look pretty as my phone cover. I loved how it turned out.
Thank you @casearts for this mobile cover.
And, thanks Zakiyya for sharing your beauriful artwork with us every other day.

Who would believe if they saw these pearls crafted to perfection were actually chocolates? Until I had a bite of it and saw it for myself, i was just amazed.
These welcome amenities from @ritzcarltondoha kept me staring at its beauty for a while before I could take a bite out of it. What beauty! Such incredible skills 😍😍

Never done a vlog before but I think its about time you get an insight into my experiences with more than just words.
These were shots I took in the @kandolhu Maldives with absolutely no plans of creating a vlog. However, since I came across a creative videographer @ah.films who put it together brilliantly, I thought this had to come online. I hope you enjoy watching it and let me know your thoughts . 💗💗 .
