Highlighting Top Local Brands To Keep You Warm This Winter

The winter season is an annual time when everyone craves getting cuddled up and cozy to warm up, especially since last weekend’s massive drop in temperature and the continuous bouts of rainy and foggy days. Such weather usually calls for soft and snuggly hoodies, onesies and pajamas that exude a warm comfort, unlike any other winter wear. Since the lockdown, there has been an ongoing growth of local Egyptian brands hitting up Instagram’s online shopping sphere as well as the streets of Cairo. To get your needed dose of warmth, we’ve picked out some of Cairo’s best local brands that specialize in everything from comfy onesies to fluffy robes.

Snuggs

From massive giraffe onesies to Christmas blanket monks that mimic flowing robes, Snuggs which opened its doors by Mohammed Ali in 2014 is known to churn out high-quality soft home wear that exudes winter comfort. Starting off online, their products were such a big hit that they ended up opening their very own store at Cairo’s The Yard.

Depending on if you go for their onesies, blanket monks, or blanket hoodies, prices would be between 600 to 900 EGP and orders can easily be made either through their official website, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp or by email.

In Your Shoe

Since they started out in April 2018, the Egyptian streetwear brand has been all about tapping into our playful and whimsical side. Starting off as a socks brand, its founder Ezz Tarek wanted to fill a big gap in the market when it came to socks adorned with funky prints like the Mona Lisa. At that time, these socks could only be bought abroad so Tarek wanted to bring them to all the way to Egyptian shores.

When COVID hit, the idea grew bigger as Tarek decided to remake those very same prints on the socks onto everything from pajamas to fluffy blankets and onesies. That’s when sales skyrocketed and today, it continues to be a massive hit with two stores already open to the public. What makes them special are their unique designs like for example their fluffy robes emblazoned with funky messages: “Acting As CSF Chief Sleeping Officer.” When it comes to their prices, they range from 500 to 900 LE. To get your hands on any of their playful winter home wear, you can make your order through their website or Instagram page.

BKY

Taking off this year, BKY is Egypt’s latest winter wear brand with a special focus on acting as the customer’s guardian angel. Their motto is to offer you products that you’d usually find at home but make them accessible outdoors. That is why their first-ever product is their BKY blanket, an extremely soft cover that will make you feel at home even when you are chilling with your friends or “spotting” at any of Cairo’s hangout spots.

These blankets come in several colors including royal red and dark grey, costing 550 LE a piece. To get your hands on one of these winter coverups, you can drop them a message on their official Instagram page.

Simplicity at its best, Not Found Co is a minimal-style unisex brand that was the brainchild of two step-sisters, Dina Tarek and Tamara Sherif. Their clothes cater to everyday individuals with a focus on comfort and minimalism. Even their color palate is of simple, calm hues like their earl grey or matcha hoodies.
