When the tradition of Islamic arts and crafts was vibrant and widespread, it served as a bridge between physical and spiritual life. It was not only the artist or craftsman who drew closer to the Divine through his work, but also the user of the art whose spiritual intimacy was enhanced.
UNS (pronounced ‘oons’), which is an Arabic word meaning “spiritual intimacy”, was founded in 2001 to promote this tradition. The company is committed to producing goods that are true to the aesthetics of Islam, and that can be an aid to those seeking to know Allah.
Finely crafted prayerbeads, made by some of the foremost Turkish craftsmen working in the Ottoman legacy, became the first UNS product because of the way they facilitate the practice of the invocations mentioned by the Beloved Prophet, may Allah bless him and give him peace.
By combining traditional Islamic design and the finest materials in a way that is in harmony with contemporary life, Uns strives to bring forth products that represent the best of the Islamic tradition while benefiting us in our daily lives.
