To make dressing modestly easy and fun so women can focus on building their dreams. Because we believe a hijabi can achieve whatever she puts her mind to.
We want to empower and inspire hijabis to dress modestly, and live boldly!
hijab + american = hijabican
We are a unique American brand blending traditional Islamic values with contemporary lifestyle design.
commitment to ethical fashion
In the summer of 2018, we made a personal pledge to discontinue manufacturing products in China and focus on ethical sourcing. We want to support women and Muslim owned businesses especially and support fair labor practices. We could not in good conscience continue as we were after watching documentaries like The True Cost and learning more about the oppression of the Uyghurs under the Chinese government. We believe once you know better, you do better- so we are doing just that!
This evolution has led us to our first worker owned sewing partner, right in our state of North Carolina, in the United States of America! Not only is it worker owned, the principal is a woman who was previously a labor rights organizer - a cause we hold dear to our hearts as well, which made them a perfect fit.
We look forward to improving our supply chain and supporting small businesses that make a positive impact in the world by sharing their products as well as our branded items with our worldwide community!
