Get to Know Us
Sacer is a homegrown Egyptian advocacy brand that specializes in sustainable, ethical, eco-conscious streetwear.
We are proud that we are a women-owned and women-led business, with around 75% of Sacer's team being female. We genuinely believe in the power of female entrepreneurship & empowerment.
Our collections are up-cycled from pre-consumer waste and crafted from 100% GOTS certified Organic Egyptian cotton. Our fabrics are soft, breathable & light-weight with vibrant colors in a wide range of inclusive styles, while our supply chain is transparent & fully traceable from seed to closet.
Sacer takes its mission beyond eco-conscious products by using our platforms in advocating for marginalized groups with a focus on mental health awareness and giving back to an array of relevant organizations.
At Sacer we want our designs to breakdown barriers, reduce stigma, raise awareness, give a voice to the voiceless, and most of all start real honest conversations.
Our designers and artists aim to shock, and enlighten; shedding light on the challenges of so many out there. Each collection will be a fashionable catalyst for change and a chance for reflection and a genuine paradigm shift about social issues and the environment.
The story of the brand began in 2005 when a medical student (Ali) had the dream of revolutionizing the fashion industry in Egypt. Fifteen years later and the brand is born.
Ali is a health economist, public health practitioner who later decided to join the United Nations where he worked for a variety of agencies in several countries tackling issues like human trafficking, migrant health, health policy, & Nutrition.
Along with his co-founder May, they launched Sacer (previously Scarabaeus Sacer); a brand with SDGs and social advocacy in its DNA.
May is a Psychologist with international experience in Switzerland and has worked in various psychiatric hospitals and clinics managing severe mental illnesses. She also has the garment and textile industry in her blood from her family business.
When Ali & May decided to start living more sustainably it was very difficult for them to find fashionable, eco-friendly, & affordable. They also wanted the clothes they wear to have meaning for them and to carry a message that could impact for good.
Together they decided to take their passion for social impact and human development and create this Egyptian eco-friendly brand. On top of it all, they are also married.
