Al Shams in Maplewood sells elegant clothing for Muslim women who want to feel beautiful and chic. They offer a variety of items including scarves, dresses, abayas, niqabs, ghashwas, jilbabs, skirts, tunics and dusters. Ninety-nine percent of Al Shams products are from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which is known for its high-quality Islamic clothing. Additionally, materials are handpicked from their suppliers in UAE to sell the best products.
A unique feature of Al Shams is their Try Before You Buy membership. Online shoppers are able to try on clothing at home for three days before making a purchase.
“Our brand has a cross-generational appeal where we find moms, daughters and even grandmoms shopping together and finding styles that meet their individual tastes and preferences,” says founder and CEO Kim Shamsiddin.
Al Shams’ products are available online for pickup in-store (BOPIS), through curbside pickup, private shopping by appointment only, and a VIP membership.
