MHARBANA -- Nobody knows what it means. It sounds provocative…

MHARBANA comes from the Aramaic and Chaldean languages. The history of these languages are ancient and originated in Babylon, which at the time was known as the world's strongest empire. As years went on, the country was subjugated by the Arabs and they banned their languagefrom being used.  Arabic soon became the primary and only language taught and spoken. They even took it to the extent of either killing anyone they heard using the language, or fining them a large amount of money that most of them did not possess, resulting in many deaths. Today, there is only a scarce minority who can still speak, read, and write in the Aramaic language; my grandfather being one of them. 

Mharbana is a term used to describe a warrior; someone powerful, fierce, unsurmountable. Their presence is strong and commands respect. 

The definition of a warrior to us is not someone who is shielded from defeat,  but instead is someone who attacks life fearlessly. It is not someone who refuses to face any challenges or adversity,  but it’s someone who has faith to overcome them despite the difficulty. A warrior allows every circumstance to make them stronger than they were before. We don’t back down, we fight. 

This whole idea of starting our athletic wear line manifested organically. Our initial plans for our future were far from this, but our true purposes in life naturally guided us to creating MHARBANA.  And when it came to us, our intentions for it were in sync.  We find strength from within and uplift one another, so the message for our brand is built upon this. As a brand, MHARBANA embodies the belief to encourage one another and be a warrior in every aspect of life. This means having strength and courage, both mentally and physically.

Our purpose is to support the strong community of people who truly emit these ideals and in return we will reflect these same values. We aim for all of our athletes to be contagiously inspiring to those surrounding them. 

So, let’s join together as a powerful force that is relentless in conquering every battle.
