A note from the founders: Kenza and Simone
Since we launched - we have seen our label grow and our products travel across the world... from New Zealand to California, Ireland to Mexico... these stories, become our stories...
O S A Y has been featured on the pages of Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, NY Post, Grazia, Paris Match, Marie Claire and countless other international publications.
More than ever, we know we have to consume and live fashion differently, essentially with more integrity, purpose, conscience, and soul...
We have curated and collaborated on designs with ethical and socially-minded emerging brands, designers and artisans from the Mediterranean region of Tunisia, in an effort to promote cultural heritage, and preserve the craftsmanship and creative expression of artisans.
We want our products to reflect values that inspire others and through shared stories to bridge cultural gaps from a region that is too often misrepresented and misunderstood.
But most importantly, we strive to share the untold stories in fashion that inspire humanity among all of us...
La Babouche: Made with soul, skill, and love
Meet Chahrazed, a former flight attendant and self taught designer who revisited la Babouche with Moez, our master artisan.
La Babouche loafers are carefully handcrafted with soul, skill, and love by master artisans Moez and Mansour in the historic "Medina" of Tunis, Tunisia.
La Babouche is inspired by a 19th Century popular indoor shoe in the Middle East known as the "Rihya". Both women and men would wear it for special occasions.
Today, our team has modernized "the Rihya" into a sleek, contemporary, elegant and comfortable - every day and everywhere - shoe.
