We founded Damascus to promote the idea of solidarity amongst Creators. We make clothing for the seekers working to shape our massive, complex world into something more beautiful and meaningful.
We hail the Creator, but what is a Creator?
Only satisfied by the change this creation brings, they can only live in a world which reflects transformation. They do not compromise. They use themselves to bring beauty and perspective to their companions, colleagues, friends, and audiences. Creators are the people who rise above the problems in our society to guide us towards a limitless world full of beauty and passion, imagination and new perspectives. We define the Creator as a spirit who actively works to create the reality they dream of.
Founded in 2009, Damascus is the brainchild of Nate Khouli and Josh Lyon. As the heart of the brand, they embody the core of our message, taking on creative, design, sales, marketing, photography and social media duties in order to intimately engage with global communities spanning over 30 countries worldwide.
We are The People of Silk & Steel, an homage to ancient Syria and the city of Damascus: The trading point and gathering place for the world's finest artists and creators. We strive to make our brand a nexus where creative minds from all backgrounds come together to inspire and grow from one another. Our firm belief: great art, stoic minds, loving hearts, and a better world are made collectively. Earth can be a big, lonely place, but with Damascus you are part of a vibrant, interconnected web of passionate spirits.
As we travel into tomorrow's unknown worlds, we support the Creators who guide us on untried paths toward the future. This is our credo and our promise: to serve as common ground and the unifying force behind those who sacrifice themselves for their art, for their love and for their goals.
Above all else, we seek to empower and inspire you to bring your vision to fruition, much as we bring ours into being.
