A PEACE TREATY is the trademark of the luxe adventuress. The company’s two founders have lived and traveled the world over, venturing to fascinating and alluring countries. Each season, APT creates exquisite designs, producing textile and jewelry collections with the finest makers the world has to offer. The pieces evoke feelings of global opulence, revealing the brand’s obsession with art and culture. Being fancy nomads, APT adores international luxury and is committed to creating designs and products that celebrate this.
A PEACE TREATY was founded in 2008 as a personal pact between Farah Malik, a Pakistani Muslim, and Dana Arbib, a Libyan Jew. Arbib and Malik met in Rome and discovered that they shared a love of high fashion and a desire to uplift age-old handmade customs, which each of their families had taught them to appreciate. With their combined international adventures and heritages, the women have cultivated an intuitive knowledge of luxurious global traditions. They know where to find the finest textile and jewelry masters, from the highest peaks of the Andes to the deserts of South Asia.
Determined to create a place in the fashion world for these processes, A PEACE TREATY works with artisan workshops across ten countries. APT’s collections of scarves and jewelry modernize the ancient and promote what they believe is simply the most beautiful way of making things. The brand has created a vast library of designs all made by hand with the utmost care and attention to detail. The brand sees itself as a preservationist of the world’s finest techniques and invites others to experience the artistry and history through each APT piece.
A PEACE TREATY has designed exclusive lines for Jonathan Simkhai and Rugby Ralph Lauren and has adorned an array of celebrities such as Jemima Kirke, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Richie, and Mary Kate Olsen. The founders have received accolades and attention from the White House and the World Bank, and educational institutions like Parsons School of Design and Princeton University, as well as from media outlets such as The New York Times, Forbes, Vogue, and Elle.
