Tamashee is the brain child of Emirati entrepreneur Mohammad Kazim and his four partners. It is a made-in-UAE footwear brand, inspired by sandals popularly worn in the Arabian gulf called zbairiya, but with a 21st Century twist.
From their website, Tamashee introduces the brand as:
Tamashee evolves traditional Arabian footwear to a fashionable product that appeals to you. We want you to look cool, we want you to be unique and make sure you stand out! That’s why we created a footwear canvas that revolves around design and quality. We travelled the world to collaborate with the finest designers, pattern drafters and manufacturers of Europe and the Middle East. Through this colorful collaboration, the Tamashee brand came to life.
Using the canvas we have created, not only do you make a fashion statement, but you also contribute to three very dear and important causes to us. You bring Arabian culture back, you export this rich culture to the world, and you contribute towards blending people with special needs to the broader society.
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.
Tamashee sandals range between Dh1,100 to Dh1,600 and are available at level Shoe District at The Dubai Mall.
