My name is Hanifa, and I am a refugee. I, along with most of the women I knew, grew up with no formal education. I wasn’t allowed to leave the house without permission. I grew up believing that women had power in a society that believed women were powerless, and in 2016 I left my home with the hope that I was right.
Now I live in America with my three children, and I want to show the world just how much women can do. H & A Designs is a company I started focused on that. We sell handcrafted, customizable women’s clothing and accessories made to make each woman who wears our designs feel beautiful and strong. This company is for my daughter, Asifa. It’s for myself. It’s for the women I knew back home, as well as the ones I meet every day. All women everywhere are brave. They are capable. They are powerful. H & A Designs is dedicated to proving that, one stitch at a time.
