About Us

Welcome to Modefa, ‘Where Modesty Meets Fashion.'

We are a family-owned small business with big dreams. Our goal is to bring quality, affordable Islamic products to Muslims in the United States and around the world. When we opened our online shop in 2012, our primary focus was Turkish hijabs. Since then, we have grown to also offer Prayer Rugs, Prayer Dresses and Feraces, Hijab Accessories, Islamic jewelry, and Islamic Home Décor. We are proud to be the Top Prayer Rug seller on Amazon, and a Top Rated Seller on eBay.


Turkey has long been known as a crossroads of civilizations. In our modern times, it is where ‘East meets West’ – literally and figuratively. Turkey embodies the Islamic attempt to meet modern times. The Islamic clothing coming out of Turkey is not only fashionable, but it is also modern and of high quality. Turkey has long been a leader in a variety of Islamic products, especially prayer rugs. The best prayer rugs from around the world are made in Turkey. Many people who travel to Mecca for Hajj or Umrah return with souvenirs (rugs, gifts, etc) that were actually made in Turkey. Turkish products are generally of better quality than those made in Asian countries (and made without the use of sweatshops), yet are still affordable for customers worldwide.


Cetinkaya Family Ramadan 2018


Ilyas and Tara Cetinkaya are the founders and co-owners of Modefa. Ilyas is a Turkish-American who is happy to be able to share products from his native country; Tara is an American Muslim revert who admires the culture and Islamic heritage of Turkey. 


The idea for Modefa came after Tara reverted to Islam. As she began dressing more modestly, and eventually wearing the hijab, she realized how difficult it was to find modest clothing in the United States—let alone modest clothing that was also stylish (or even decent!). Attempts to find quality clothing, hijabs and accessories online were fraught with disappointment. Tara and Ilyas realized that there was a void in the market that needed to be filled. With their experience and connections to Turkey, they decided that Turkish products were the perfect thing to fill that void.


We warehouse our products and ship from Richardson, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. Our central location in the United States means we can ship products quickly to many states; once shipped, products can often arrive in 2-3 business days. Please see our Shipping Information page for more detailed information regarding shipping.

We are happy to announce that in December 2016 we moved to a new location, which includes a showroom that is open to the public. Please note this is not a full retail location, although customers may still view and purchase a larger variety of our inventory, and also pickup online orders from this location.

We are currently open to the public 10am to 6pm, no appointment required. If you are not able to shop during these times, please email or call us to request a weekend appointment.
