Important updates about Taita Leila's outreach تحديثات هامة بخصوص التواصل مع تيتا ليلى

Since last year's uprising, we have been having difficulty in reaching our audience via social media, and especially Instagram. We are tired of being shadowbanned simply because we're Palestinian.  What's it like being shadowbanned?  Your exposure on a given social media platform is restricted and your direct followers infrequently see your posts. Even supermodel Bella Hadid has called out the platform for silencing her whenever she posts anything about Palestine, her stories drop by over 1 MILLION views! Instagram has and always will be antithetical to Palestinians' revolution and resistance. To make sure you get our latest updates without being controlled by these platforms, we have decided to focus on sending emails to you. Please sign up to our newsletter, the form to do so is at the bottom of every page on our website.  ...

An update on our zero waste policy

The fashion industry is one of the worst offenders when it comes to waste and pollution. As conscientious creators, we have been thinking a lot about how to minimise our contribution to this problem. We are moving towards reduce-reuse-recycle, and using materials that are more sustainably produced and sourced. Our upcoming collection has been designed around using up materials we had previously purchased for samples. This also means that each piece is unique and in a very limited number, so once they are gone, they are gone! Given the difficulty of creating clothing under occupation in Palestine, we realise we are undertaking a huge challenge. We do our best to navigate our responsibility for the environment and our aim to...

A Letter Against Apartheid

"In the face of the increased mortal danger of the past two weeks, Palestinians are uniting once again. In Palestine and across the world, vast numbers are taking to the streets, organizing on social media, defending their homes, protecting each other, and demanding an end to ethnic cleansing, apartheid, discrimination and dispossession. Our communities have been systematically denied their right of return and forcibly fragmented and erased since An-Nakba, the dawn of Israeli settler colonial rule in 1948, and this recent coming together has given us some much-needed confidence amid the rage and grief of the past two weeks. We are starting to feel, in spite of all that is happening, in spite of years of dehumanization, some hope. We,...

A little on Grassroots Al-Quds, our chosen partner for the 'Roh Sitti' collection

  Our latest collection "Roh Sitti" is a little bit different to our previous ones. Because this collection is dedicated to our namesake Taita Leila, we wanted to donate the proceeds to an institution in her honour. As she was forced out of her birthplace and hometown, we thought it fitting to partner with Grassroots Al-Quds.  Grassroots Al-Quds is a platform for community mobilization and networking in occupied Jerusalem. They believe that the vision for Jerusalem, and the path to it, must be articulated and shaped by the Palestinian community itself. In order to break free from the Israeli occupation, and build a vibrant and just society, they believe that the Palestinian people need to lead their struggle for liberation...
