"Being women who wear the hijab ourselves, we knew the struggles women like us face everyday. We want to empower women by making them feel confident and beautiful in their hijab without compromising on hair health. We want them to feel seen by creating solutions to their struggles, and struggles of women in general. We want to give women more hair care options, so we founded Silque Co, as a luxe silk haven for the best hair care."

Shereen and Homma are two besties, who met 12 years ago at uni, and graduated together from UNSW School of Optometry and Vision Science in 2015.

Shereen, as the creative director and cofounder, is passionate about redefining stereotypes and empowering women. She likes to share how her modest fashion styling intertwines with her career, motherhood, and lifestyle on her own Instagram page.

Homma, as the cofounder, is also an optometrist director who runs a busy clinic. She loves fashion and is passionate about giving back to the community by being a volunteer optometrist at the Asylum Seeker Centre.

The road to designing the Silqap was full of challenges. It took multiple designs, samples, trials, sleepless nights, and testing to finally perfect a silk lined cap that is stretchy enough to wear, anti-slip, sleek, and full coverage with a self adjustable closure at the back.
