2012 FEATURED DESIGNER
Vela's philosophy is simple, yet avant-garde: to capture the rare combination of modesty and high fashion. Latin for "veil," Vela aims to design beautiful veils that can be truly appreciated by the modern Muslim woman. Vela seeks to end the often-frustrating search for that chic veil to perfectly complement any look — from the everyday to the special occasion. And of course, Vela prides itself in producing exclusive veil creations using only the finest fabrics from around the world — as the quintessential reflection of our customers.
The Vela lifestyle brand is the essence of our long-standing vision to empower Muslim women who embrace the challenge to merge modern flair and individual style.

Vela was born in 2009, when Marwa simply began incorporating her favorite accents, such as ruffles and zippers, into otherwise simple fabric veils. Marwa and her sister, Tasneem Atik Sabri, partnered to officially launch their company in 2010, featuring a website bringing beautiful, elegant, and affordable veils to women globally.
