The virtual event is meant to support small brands through this difficult time.
Starting April 18th, Bazarna Co. and Dresscode will be launching a partnered online bazaar event in support of local brands and small businesses. The two-week event will be held on Dresscode’s website, where new and small vendors will be selling a wide variety of goodies, including a product range in preparation for the holy month of Ramadan. Egyptian red tent fabric and hammered copper nut bowls? We ship it.
“The main goal is not to endorse Bazarna Co. or Dresscode," Noura Abdelmohsen, the marketing manager for Bazarna Co., told CairoScene. "The focus behind the event is to support those small brands that mainly rely on bazaars to sell their products, because they don’t have a large following online and aren’t up on a shopping site.”
Home accessories, kitchen supplies, clothing, jewellery, and basically everything under the sun will be available at the online bazaar. Brands including Israa Accessories, Mint Home, and Grow & Glow are among the long list of 31 different vendors. And the fact that they’re handmade by local artisans only makes it all the more enticing to #BuyLocal.
