The Making of Saamiya
The Saamiya is anything but your basic tunic! Survey feedback from past customers helped to inform one of our latest designs. During the pandemic, women told us that they were no longer looking for occasion wear. However, these dynamic ladies, many of whom were still working in the field, wanted easy and feminine tops that were as versatile (to “dress up” or “dress down”), vibrant and special as the styles they have come to know from Sew Elevated. We quickly embarked on meeting this need.
Much time, consideration and consultation took place to ensure that Saamiya - meaning elevated and lofty- remains your go-to tunic for years to come. After a thoughtful design process and production of our initial sample, we consulted with a seasoned industry fit specialist who has worked with a host of noteworthy brands. Every detail you see has been considered - from the overall tunic length, sleeve length, vent opening, contrast stitching, back closure, fabric and the varied colorway.
The mid-weight and breathable knit fabric provides a seasonless option that feels amazing on the skin and can be worn year round. For those who have difficulties finding tops of the right length amidst a sea of waist length shirts, our tunic falls perfectly above the knee. The side vents open near the waist so that women can move with grace and ease without the discomfort of the shirt hugging their hips. This opening also allows access to your pockets without lifting your shirt above your backside. The sleeve length intentionally falls above the wrist, allowing you to adorn yourself with all the beautiful arm candy you desire. Contrast color stitching around the vents and hem add that extra special touch to elevate your look. It further comes in a variety of colorways to suit your subdued or vibrant color needs, including black, mustard, fuschia, red, olive and leopard. To top it off, the back closure is accented with two stunning custom brand buttons engraved with “SE.”
You deserve the best. You deserve to feel like the rare and incomparable woman that you are. Saamiya is the staple designed with your needs and magnificence in mind.
