Kout is a fortress, earliest examples of Kuwaiti architecture and the word in which the name Kuwait “little fortress” derived from.

The Kout collection is inspired by elements found in objects within the region of the Arabian Gulf countries’ heritage. This first edition of the Kout collection is based on geometries, colors, textures, and embroideries found across the formal male traditional costume. The main principles applied to execute such concepts were systems of hierarchical layering and symmetries found on the head piece “Egal” and cloak “Bisht”. During the old days, both of these items materials were carefully chosen and crafted to achieve rich contrasting textures and colors, and detailed consistent repetition of patterns that highlighted corners and edges for a finish that reflect wealth and status.
