M.A. Al Abdul Karim & Partners Co. is one of the leading retail companies in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) offering reputed brands from across the world. In 1957 Al-Abdul Karim Exhibition was established as one of the first garment stores in the old town Riyadh at Al Thumeree Street. The shop gained popularity as a distributor of leading European brand names and eventually became a destination store across the Kingdom.

Today the Group is a prominent lifestyle fashion retailer operating several brands across categories including The BlueAge, RINA, Terranova, Calliope, BalaBala, Semir, LÄTT LIV as well as beauty brand Note MakeUp and online outlet concept Outies. The brands under M.A. Al Abdul Karim & Co. have an extensive presence in Saudi Arabia with over 180 stores across the Kingdom.

According to Chief Executive Officer Abdul Aziz Al Abdulkarim, Mohammed Abdulmohsen Al Abdul Karim & Partners Company showcases an unwavering commitment to excellence, innovation and customer satisfaction. With a relentless focus on expanding retail presence, optimising operations and continuously evolving its product offerings, the company is setting new benchmarks for growth and service quality.

The company prides itself on its comprehensive vertical integration, which spans the entire spectrum of the fashion industry seamlessly managing every aspect of the process – from initial design concepts to sourcing the finest materials, overseeing production and delivering exceptional products.

What’s more, sustainability is at the heart of the organisation’s values and operations with a strong focus on reducing its environmental footprint and contributing to a greener future. A significant part of its commitment involves the use of renewable energy sources, powering some of its factories with green energy, therein reducing carbon emissions. Additionally, the company’s ‘Love Earth’ sub-brand made from recycled cotton stands as a testament to its dedication to sustainability, showcasing efforts to minimise waste and promote eco-conscious fashion choices.
