The finest materials and finishes: Some of the company’s latest product developments include linen knitted ties, which are crafted from the finest linen fabrics using only state-of-the-art technology, the final cut and finish are extremely precise. These ties can ideally be worn for casual parties or smart casual gatherings. Hameedia’s lapel flowers and pins on the other hand serve as the perfect accent for a more formal outfit and add a touch of elegance to ceremonial attire. The flowers are made with steel, wool, linen and micro-fiber fabrics and the pins include semi-precious stones and plated steel. These materials are generally difficult to incorporate into accessories, but Hameedia uses the latest machinery and production techniques to create consistently well-finished pieces.
Staples with an edge: Renowned as being a quintessential accessory for gentlemen of all ages, the pocket square is regarded as a wardrobe staple. Hameedia’s wool-blend pocket square is created from the highest grade of wool blends and silk yarns to ensure that the final product is sophisticated and chic. Hameedia’s tuxedo studs are made from mother-of-pearl stonesand plated steal – this results in a smooth finish that has a captivating iridescence. Both the wool-blending pocket squares and tuxedo studs are the ideal accessories for ceremonial wear, and the studs are also available with matching cufflinks.

The company introduced a collar bar that is enhanced by precious stones and plated steel, making it a more glamorous option for ceremonial occasions.
