These Are the Jordanian Brands We Know and Love

This new wave is certainly not walking on thin ice

Shaped by conflicts and what sometimes feels like never-ending political stress, the Jordanian Kingdom is not outwardly your typical fashion and design hub. Recently enough, the industry has been relying on a new wave of young gifted designers that are flaunting a creative genius that could even bring the Dead Sea back to life. 

Sharing their stories and fervour for fashion through a unique approach to clothing, the Hashemite Kingdom’s artistic endeavours have nothing to envy the Arab world’s. In fact, it is setting the bar quite high while inspiring most of its neighbours. 

Although Amman may not be the fashion capital you would immediately think of, we’ve rounded-up 5 local brands and initiatives that will make you want to rethink that claim completely.

Established in the capital city of Amman, Tania George’s eponymous brand seeks to make contemporary designs and traditional patterns meet through a wide-range of pastel infused textiles. The summer induced palette of colours have become fully-fledged part of the studio’s signature also having a thing for recurrent monogram inspired fits.

From London to Amman, the Jordanian brand attempts to ‘recommunicate the essence of the Keffiyeh scarf and provide a fresh view of Palestine & Jordan while shining a positive light on a culture so rich with design, craft and beauty’. Through mainly monochromatic pieces, the brand’s first collection also carries a pledge in which the young label seeks to move all labour and craftsmanship to local manufacturers and suppliers in order to bolster employment opportunities for Palestinian refugees living in Jordan.
