Tezirah’s Souk is run by Tessa Lane (Tezirah), with the assistance of her long-suffering husband, Brian. Tezirah is a working belly dancer who both teaches and performs in the Essex area, so she knows what works (and what doesn’t!) in terms of styles, fabrics etc. All our products are chosen by belly dancers, for belly dancers, so you're sure to find exactly what you're looking for on these pages.
In February 2018 we were delighted to open our costume showroom in Rayleigh, Essex. If you're within travelling distance, you are very welcome to pay us a visit at the showroom, where you can try on as many costumes as you wish to get the perfect look.
At Tezirah’s Souk, we believe that every worker has the right to be paid (at the very least) a living wage in order to support themselves and their families. We are currently working on producing a range of Tezirah's Souk originals, which will be created by self-employed artisans and small businesses who will receive fair payment for their skills and experience. Other items are ethically sourced from businesses we believe to treat their workers well and pay them a fair wage. We personally visit as many of these businesses as we can and some are recommended to us by others who share our values.
