How did you end up making /selling the things you make/sell i.e. what made you go into it?
When I decided to embark on this journey all I knew was that I wanted to create a Plain Prayer Mat that would blend in with today’s homes and work environment. Whether you’re a home owner or a company it feels great to be surrounded by nice furniture, beautifully designed interiors and then we have these ancient Prayer Mats full of patterns and colours probably made in the 1950’s that match nothing and are still widely in circulation today across the globe. There was no modern alternative, so I designed and made one and The Prayer Mat Company was born.
I’m a proud British Muslim, so in my mind it had to be a British Muslim product and after months of knocking on doors (mainly being told don’t bother or we can’t help) I met some amazing people who helped bring my vision to life.
What do you like about the things you make / sell?
They say simplicity is the key to brilliance. My design is very clean & simple and that’s all you need. Simple, classic designs allowing you to focus on your prayer with no distracting patterns or images.
The colours are fresh and my range offers something for all from those who want something subtle like the Salina Grey and Yasmin Brown to the bright and in your face coloured Prayer Mats like The Aisha Pink or the Salma Coral. And they make amazing gifts which I love!
Everyone wants to give a gift that’s “ different”. You search and search the internet looking for unique products and here it is! When was the last time you came across a Contemporary Modern looking Designer Prayer Mat? Have you ever known there to be anyone else making British Designer Prayer Mats? No! Exactly so you need to get buy one today!
How many times have we have given loved one’s a gift they used maybe once or twice?
Well what if you could buy a gift that may be used over 1000 times every year!
Every time your loved one looks down at their Prayer Mat they will be remembering Allah and also remember you – the person who gifted it to them. Subhan Allah how beautiful is that!
This is my dream, a creative British Muslimah trying to establish an affordable Designer Brand of Prayer Mats for the Muslim Ummah. So please send lots of duas this way please!
