Our Passion, Mission and Impact

A modern multi-cultural woman, the founder of ALANGOO, grew up in Tehran. Along with a group of friends, she was able to set up underground fashion shows and exhibitions to sell her avant-garde handmade apparel and home décor in the capital city of Tehran. Although very successful, the group had no way of introducing their designs to the outside world.

Upon graduating from Azad University of Art and Architecture in Tehran she moved to New York in 2002, where she fell head over heels in love with the Big Apple. While missing the support of her friends in Tehran and on the verge of losing confidence in her crafts, she decided to embark on a new career path. She studied at New York University and earned a Masters degree in Graphic Communications Management and Technology which lead her to enter the world of online media. After working for some New York and Boston top ad agencies, she decided to create this platform as a way to give a voice to her friends, as well as other underground artists. ALANGOO is her brainchild.

ALANGOO's passion is celebarting culture and authenticity. Something that money can never buy. It must be cherrished, respected and kept alive. There are many ways to do so but we decided to show it off with unique peices to be worn or used in homes. strives to give voice and bring attention to the hidden talents of under-stated culturally rich regions where thousands of talented individuals like the founder's friends are creating beautifule pieces with a story behind them. Stories of love, pride, faith, political isolation, freedom and many more. We believe in the community. Community of immigrants. Community of those who were forced to leavve their homeland and found home in other countires and among others and shared their cultures with them. Over the creation of, we are proud to be home to many talanted artists and artisans. Helped many grow and gained recognition within our global community and will continue to do so, proudly.
