Kasbah Kosmic was founded in 2019 by social worker and designer Kenza Vandeput Taleb. Kenza is driven to explore and question her dual Algerian-belgian heritage through up-cycling, custom -and reconstructed garment. Kasbah Kosmic is a brand with a strong and shifted aesthetic which uses unusual and eclectic materials, unique handcrafting techniques and eccentric playful styling. The brand finds its influence in a phantasmal vision of Algeria and Maghrebian culture in general using bootleg, labels, traditional Algerian fabrics and symbols. Kasbah Kosmic aims to pride, openness, showing the energy from the deep ancestral Kasbah with a Kosmic vision.
As you may know, designers have a big ecological impact trough designing and production process, but also on an educational level. Sustainability start already into the first bunch of ideas. Kasbah Kosmic chose a circular approach by using wasted materials, second hand clothes and left over stock.
This way of working provide to the aware customer a uniquely individual garment, one-of-a-kind piece representing the power of a spontaneous moment of creation and freedom.
