THE FOUNDERS

RABIH

"Hey there, I'm Rabih, a painter and designer hailing from Lebanon. Since an early age, I've been drawn to visionary, dark, and macabre art, igniting my passion for painting and sketching. Over the course of 16 years, my journey has been one of pure obsession, as I honed my craft and forged an identity that diverged from the norm; I never formally studied fine arts. My paintings became a raw expression of emotions, while my sketches became a window into my mind and thoughts.

I delved into graphic design with the aim of turning my obsession into a career. My goal was clear: to design band logos, album covers, concert flyers, and carve out a living doing what I truly love.

In my extensive 16-year tenure in the creative and production realm, I established a production house, Smartink, specializing in printing materials, customized items, and bespoke shirts on demand. Eventually, I co-founded an agency, Lezard, where I collaborated with renowned brands in art direction, brand development, and storytelling.

My upbringing immersed in metal music, attending concerts, and witnessing the ever-evolving metal scene fueled my passion for fashion within the community. Recognizing the desire for authentic, artistically crafted attire, I began printing my own shirts for myself and friends. Frustrated by the lack of unique options in the market, I saw an opportunity when my partner, Kareem, proposed the idea of launching a clothing brand.

Kareem and I shared a mutual ethos and vision for the brand, rooted in our shared passion for craftsmanship and creation. Thus, KrypticWear was born. Our inaugural collection in 2024 marks the beginning of an exciting journey, where we collaborate with artists from the dark realms to diversify our offerings, starting with shirts and expanding to include hoodies and beyond, with aspirations to become a prominent fashion brand in the future."

I'm Karim, once a product designer navigating the realms of functionality, but now, I've ventured into the depths of creativity by
embarking on a journey in the clothing industry.

My fascination with dark, black gothic art isn't just a preference; it's a reflection of my innermost passions and inspirations. Growing up,
I found solace and inspiration within the vibrant and mysterious allure of the dark community.

My roots run deep within the metalhead community, where the pounding rhythms of metal music became the soundtrack of my upbringing.
It's in this atmosphere that my love for the darker aesthetics flourished and shaped my artistic vision.

It is there and then that I have forged a long lasting brotherhood with Rabih.

And so we have decided to embark on our mission to extend beyond just selling t-shirts. It's about shining a spotlight on the untapped talent within the MENA region's dark community. Through our brand, we aim to elevate local artists and promote their work, igniting a flame within the region's creative landscape.

This journey is deeply personal to me; it's a testament to my unwavering dedication to redefine style and empower individuals to embrace their unique darkness.

painting, digital creation, and product design, We constantly seek expressions that resonate with our authentic selves. Fueled
