IN PURSUIT OF INNER PEACE
As a corner of solitude, a place of peace and coziness, RAHATNOOK refers to our “space of silence”, both spatial and spiritual. It stands for the time we deliberately take for our daily prayers to immerse ourselves into “another world”.
“RAHAT” [‘ɾɑ:hat] – peace, calm, comfort | “NOOK” [nʊk] – sheltered place, cosy corner
In pursuit of rahat we are passionate about finding the best, ethically sourced and fair traded natural materials to create timeless and functional products for a muslim’s everyday use. To us, thoughtfulness and sustainability plays an important part in worshiping the One, and by honouring the raw materials He provided us with, we intend to make products that are made to last.
A daily commodity such as the prayer rug, which symbolises the outer boundary between daily life and meditation, should convey the same naturalness and timelessness as prayer. Our RAHATNOOK is made to embody the realm of tranquility and peace that we enter inwardly while experiencing contemplation and spirituality.
RAHATNOOK was born from the desire to establish naturalness and organic consciousness within every corner of our everyday lives. By doing so, we wish to offer muslims a pleasant framework for their daily ibadah in accordance with our principles: a natural, sustainable and fair approach dealing with our environment and our fellow human beings.
With a focus on natural materials, we do not compromise on quality, fair manufacturing and sustainability, and the timeless classic design of our products owns up to our deliberate rejection of unnecessary mass consumption.
We started RAHATNOOK out of the need to put our foreheads on natural materials when on the go, just like home.
We were looking for something non-synthetic, still impervious and easy to carry but couldn’t find anything, so we decided to design something that fulfills our needs.
We believe that a good product starts with good raw materials. And by honoring the raw materials He provided us with, we intend to make products that are made to last.
After a long research and lot of sampling, we decided to go with wool because of its great properties. Wool is natural, renewable resource. We do not need to plant it :). It is a secondary product of having the sheep. It just grows on them.
We at RAHATNOOK believe that sustainability matters in every step of the production, in the sense that what we do should not cause any harm to anyone. Out of respect to everything that has been given to us, a conscious and responsible use of resources and interaction with the environment is crucial. To avoid environmentally harmful mass consumption, we need to create high quality products that are made to last.
Sustainability and natural materials go hand in hand and RAHATNOOK stands for both.
We – Anesa, Nadina and Ismar – are three close friends who live the Bosnian rahat to the fullest, while being attached to implementing a natural lifestyle in all spheres of our lives.
We have worked together for many years on different projects, and with RAHATNOOK we wish to bring our passions together and create timeless, sustainable and high quality products for your everyday use. To us, the prayer is the most natural and intimate daily deed. Having this in mind, we believe in the importance of creating an environment that will help us establish a better connection to the One.
WE BELIEVE IN CREATING BEAUTIFUL AND NATURAL AMBIENCE IN PURSUIT OF INNER PEACE.
