Khanum’s was founded to create timeless, investment pieces to challenge the underlying sentiments of throwaway fashion and overconsumption. We intend to create beautifully constructed garments that can be worn for a lifetime, championing neutral tones and classic tailoring over trend-driven design. We are committed to continually improving our sourcing and supply chain practices in order to ensure our garments are made in the best possible working conditions and that the materials we use will have the lowest possible impact on the environment. We want our customers to feel they can hand down our garments to future generations and know that together we have created a more sustainable future.
All of our pieces are designed in-house at our London HQ and are made to articulate our contemporary attitude. Our expertise in embellishment, fit and luxury fabrics underpin each collection where we create garments that are uncompromising in both their design and their quality.
Our obsessive eye for detail is omnipresent throughout our lengthy development process comprising CAD design, pattern cutting and fabric selection right until our signature labels are sewn to mark our finishing touches. Every intricate detail is tirelessly considered by our Design Team to ensure every Khanum’s collection communicates an inherent feeling of sophistication and empowerment.
Passed down through generations, our master Artisans combine a lifetime of craft knowledge and traditional beading techniques to create remarkable articles of beauty.
Every piece is hand-made and hand-embellished by our Artisans in South Asia or by our dedicated embellishment team, in house at our London HQ. All our garments hold an intent to conceive a display of their meticulous craftsmanship. Everything is done by hand and this is something we take great pride in.
The precision required to produce our embellished styles means that these items take over 6 weeks of work to complete. Every Khanum’s product is instilled with a sense of intense pride by our Artisans, where their emotional craft resonates deeply within each work of art.
Khanums’ decadent embellishment techniques use recycled faux pearls, diamantés and glass bead embroidery to create instantly recognisable handwork.
Using the traditional tones of precious metals, our masterful detailing has diverse inspirations from the brands Bangladeshi heritage to the beauty found in nature. Boasting tens of thousands of individual beads on some garments, detailed adornments highlight our mastery of craft.
