About us


Founded in Kuwait, we design contemporary, handmade and high-quality women’s footwear and accessories. We are committed to innovation design and to working with skilled craftsmen to bring to life, as we like to call it, the perfect THUNA a.k.a pair.

Our footwear is designed to be with each and every woman on her journey and to remind her to fully embrace the path she’s chosen. We believe that all women are living an inspirational journey unique to them; we don’t believe in a “right path”, but rather that we are all meant to pave our own however way we want. Most of all, we believe that every step of that path counts and should be celebrated.


Women are at the center of our universe at THUNA so when it comes to creating and designing our pieces, they are our main source of inspiration.

Our pieces are inspired by the modern-day woman, a strong, multi-faceted character with a thousand different layers. She is a character who knows no limits; for her, sky is the limit. She has shattered ceilings and brought down boundaries. She believes that she holds the key to her own happiness and takes charge of her own journey.

Just like this woman, our pieces are multi-faceted and diverse. They represent the layers, or “Thanaya” as we like to call them in Arabic, of each woman and interpret these layers through the designs, colors and techniques.

THUNA is not just a brand; it's a path and companion in a woman’s journey, making it steadier and more comfortable. It is the layer she wears not only to ground her, but also to mobilize her into her future.



The word THUNA is derived from the word “pair” in Arabic, which not only refers to a pair of shoes, but also represents the two women behind it all. With 10 years of friendship and thriving corporate careers, Altaf and Sharifa had been there for each other every step of the way. It was only natural for the duo to join forces when they found themselves ready to start something of their own.

Both felt inspired to challenge the status quo and venture into the footwear business, one typically dominated by men, and founded THUNA. Each piece of the brand harmoniously embodies both of their personal styles and is designed with comfort and practicality in mind.

The founders believe that every woman needs a good pair of shoes to get her through the day and remind her to celebrate every step of her journey. And although the journey for THUNA started with footwear, the duo sees it evolving as a lifestyle brand that brings together like-minded women.
