The process of manufacturing abayas at Hanayen Abaya Factory is a meticulous journey that combines traditional craftsmanship with modern techniques. Each step is carefully executed to ensure the highest quality and attention to detail. Here's an overview of the process:


Design and Conceptualization:

The process begins with the creative team ideating and sketching designs. They draw inspiration from traditional Emirati aesthetics, as well as contemporary fashion trends. The design is chosen based on its appeal, cultural significance, and market demand.


Fabric Selection:

High-quality fabrics are paramount in creating exceptional abayas. Fabrics such as silk, chiffon, crepe, and satin are chosen for their luxurious feel and drape. The choice of fabric depends on the design's requirements and the season.


Pattern Making:

Once the design is finalized, pattern makers create the paper patterns for cutting the fabric. These patterns are meticulously crafted to ensure that the fabric pieces fit together seamlessly.


Cutting and Preparing Fabric:

Skilled artisans carefully lay out the fabric according to the patterns and cut each piece with precision. Attention is paid to matching patterns and ensuring the proper alignment of the fabric.


Embroidery and Embellishments:

If the design includes embroidery or embellishments, this is the stage where they are added. Intricate embroidery and beadwork are often done by hand to create exquisite patterns and designs on the abaya.


Sewing and Assembly:

The cut fabric pieces are then sewn together by skilled seamstresses. Each seam and stitch is executed with care to ensure durability and a seamless finish. Attention is given to details like hems, cuffs, and collars.


Fittings and Quality Control:

After assembly, the abaya goes through a series of fittings to ensure that it fits perfectly on a mannequin or a model. Quality control checks are conducted to ensure that the stitching, embroidery, and overall construction meet the brand's high standards.


Finishing Touches:

The final touches, including buttons, zippers, or other closures, are added at this stage. The abaya is pressed and steamed to give it a polished appearance.


Packaging and Presentation:

Once the abaya passes all quality checks, it is carefully packaged with attention to detail. Hanayen's branding and presentation ensure that the customer receives a product that is as luxurious as it is exquisite.
