A little bit of history

Our story starts with one man who never settled for anything less. During the 30-year war that left the beautiful island country of Sri Lanka devastated he left his hometown to find a safe haven in Badulla with his newly wed bride. With the situation getting worse in his hometown in Batticaloa which was slowly becoming the epicenter for communal clashes and vicious terrorist attacks, the newly wedded couple realized going back home was no longer an option. They decided to set up roots in Badulla, got a job, lived in a small - room/apartment in a shop building.

It was not all gloom in this story, the founder of JEZZA, Mr. N.L.A Jameel was a visionary of his time. He started with a single sewing machine, Mrs. Raiza Jameel who was a mother of 2 at this point decided to pitch in. Together, they started manufacturing dresses. The basis of their teamwork was established- He would sell, and she would sew. In true entrepreneurship fashion they worked hard, made smart decisions and hustled all the way. Over the next few years, they saw their business flourish. Mr. N.L.A Jameel briefly ran a successful clothing store in the small town of Badulla.

Fast forward a few years they decided to move to Colombo which is the business hub of Sri Lanka. Once again, they set up roots in a new town, this time with bigger ambitions.

20 years in, they were among the top manufactures in the country, they supplied their clothes under their brand name “JEZZA” which was sold island wide, in every part of the country.

With the company growing and a new generation stepping into the family owned business it was time to once again make bold choices. Mr. Jassim Jameel would take up manufacturing and setting up a wholesale brand “KYRA” which would be sold island wide. While Ms. Jeeza Jameel and Mr. Shahzad Salih would take “JEZZA” to the Retail market, opening 3 successful new outlets in a span of 2 years.

The Brand JEZZA evolved over the years but at the core of the product it was always about quality. No matter the, design or price it was always about quality. The brand never compromised on quality and over the years gained a loyal customer following.

And here we are today, a brand that stood the test of time, evolved every step of the way. Passed down from true visionaries of their time to a second wave of passionate entrepreneurs.

What’s next?

With the growing popularity of JEZZA in our home country our goal is to take this brand international. Our goal is to set up a successful online store delivering a pleasant shopping experience for our customers from any part of the world. We will constantly work hard towards improving our operations to serve you better. Our promise is to remain a quality conscious brand.
