Our first encounter was at the tender age of 4…
It was not just a figure out of any other children’s game, It was my muse, my earliest INSPIRATION! MY ABALULU…
What does Abalulu mean?
Abalulu is an old middle eastern children’s game, which we used to play as young kids in my hometown. The game is all about role play, imagination, creativity and individuality… Taking turns, one of the children takes the role of Abalulu, the “lovable ghost”… Running around and all arms flapping, the Abalulu would chase the other children, shouting “Abalulu is coming, Abalulu is coming…!”, while her playmates scatter around with shrieks and laughter filling the room.
Abalulu is one of my best memories as a child… The game would transport me to an imaginary universe, in which I was taken over by the Abalulu’s spirit: A strong, powerful, energetic and tribal figure who could do anything and be anything.
Symbols, we love them
Drawing from the folklore of my childhood, Abalulu is based on ancient symbols and motifs such as freedom, success, protection, and confidence.
These symbols are woven through Abalulu’s collection, in the forms of birds, handprints, eyes and leaders. Abalulu is designed to inspire imagination, for children who roam the world freely, who dare and don’t care.
“I tried to combine my expertise in design with my experience as a mother to bring you Abalulu – a world of exploration and adventure.”, Inbal Caspi Miller, Founder and Fashion Designer.
Unleash your inner child!
We choose unique fabrics, sometimes developing our own,
Using ultra-soft and comfortable material, often undergoing special washing processes.
Abalulu collections lie in a connection between East and West, a conspicuous fusion of worlds.
Travelling between production sites in the Middle and Far East to trade shows in Los Angeles, New York and Paris, this is the story of who I am and it clearly defines the style we bring:
Combining ancient techniques such as the “Block Printing” (wood carving to create stamp printing) and modern metallic fabrics, brilliant foil patterns, the combination of faded and torn shiny and tight.
Abalulu has created a new language, elements taken from the adult world, still maintaining the kid’s purity and naivety.
Me = I
MIA = my middle daughter
One day my little daughter Mia turned to me and said, “Mummy, I want a dress like yours,” so I did…
Mia and I like to dress together, she loves to choose for both of us and I love that we wear the same style but each with a different pattern, another color that connects in harmony together, it is fun and amusing.
