Creating Beauty – 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.
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.
Ismar & Nadina on Anesa:
Anesa is the most rahat loving person there is. To make her happy you only need coffee the whole day and night. She absolutely rejoices in all sorts of patterns, enchanting paper and crafting items. Everything she surrounds herself with is beautiful and carefully chosen, with a particular attention for details, which is what makes her the world’s best and most thoughtful giver of gifts. It is also why our logo was created in only 46 attempts, and it makes her a perfect coworker, as she will try to get the best out of everything and everyone.
Anesa & Ismar on Nadina:
Nadina always sees good in people and is a master at turning your attention away from dispensable to the really important things, may they be little or big. With her good eye for beautiful details, you can make her happy with simple and lovely little things. Her love of minimalism reflects her appreciation for what is given to her. It enables her to reflect upon the heart of things. What you should know is that Nadina really enjoys drinking coffee, specifically cappuccino, at least she will tell you so. We think she only drinks it because of the milk foam.
Nadina & Anesa on Ismar:
Ismar is a pragmatic idealist with a great passion for football (the one played with the feet) and Nikola Tesla. He has a radar for the complicated things in the world and a desire to make them easier and everything a little bit better. Being an adventure lover, hiker, achiever and winner, he accepts every challenge in a motivated and enthusiastic way true to the maxim “everything is possible” until a problem is solved. There is no fun in being on the opposite team when playing board games.
We believe in creating beautiful and natural ambience in pursuit of inner peace.
