Nos Nos means "half half" in Arabic. It's a term near and dear to our hearts.
We are two American mothers living in Dubai. Our husbands come from the land of tabboulleh and man'oushe. But our kids are something completely different. We often joke that they are "nos nos:" half American, half Lebanese, and something 100% all their own.
So with our own kids' unique spirits in mind, we are excited to introduce Nos Nos Online Boutique, a collaboration born of our shared desire to bring unique and creative children's clothing, toys and accessories to the Middle East. We handpick emerging designers from America, Europe and beyond, many who are moms just like us, to stock impossibly cute pieces.
But that's not all. We also handpick brands that are giving back.
One of our designers provides jobs to single mothers in Colombia, who stitch her gorgeous clothing by hand. Through her unique business model, she is empowering motherhood. Another uses part of her proceeds to provide schooling to children in northern India. Apart from receiving the basic need of education, she is opening doors to the future. And yet another donates turbans to babies or children that have lost their hair due to medically induced hair loss. She is doing what she can to change the face of fashion.
Our collections are globally sourced with a conscience. Because, as mothers, we feel compelled to be a part of something bigger. Much bigger.
We have some exciting things lined up for 2016. We hope you'll keep checking back in to watch us grow.
