Besarani was established in 1949 in Sulaimania, a city in Kurdistan (Iraq), by Mr Besarani Senior who had a passion for fine fabrics and silk scarves. He sourced fabrics from different parts of the world, going as far as Japan, China and South East Asia. Besarani has become renowned for its outstanding quality, exquisite designs and attention to detail.
Mr Besarani Senior retired in the late 80’s and in 1995 Mr K and Mrs S Besarani were inspired to re-establish the company in London.
Besarani now specializes in burn out velvet-silk and other varieties of silk. By developing hundreds of different styles of scarves and garments, Besarani has become the landmark for wonderful quality in the field of burn out velvet and silk. All our scarves have a fine finish and many are handmade. Over the years, our garments have been worn by celebrities including Kate Moss and Jo Brand.
Our customers have inspired us and given us amazing input which has helped define how our style, colours and designs have evolved. We value our client’s feedback and we endeavour to help clients discover our special and unique items for years to come.
