About the Process
For Amal, creating luxury goods has always been a rewarding process. Her education in landscape architecture, fashion design, and interior design over the past ten years have given her a unique set of tools, that have given her the ability to balance the golden rule of form + function
Amal designs start with the ideas about how said design will be used and where it will be worn. A mood board filled with her sketches and inspiration images of whimsical locations, architectural and floral shapes, vivid colors ways and luxe materials cover the studio walls.
Once her design is ready, using her own patterns and the help of modern technoloy, she cuts, embosses, sews, assembles and monograms each and every design, turning it into a tangible, luxe good.
Each and every order placed is made order, packaged and shipped from Amal's home-based studio in Sacramento, California.
