“I practice Simplicity, Patience, and Compassion. My love for humanity grows everyday. My goals and daily practices are to be kind and to lead by example. My heart and soul is put into every design. All designs are original and come from the spirit. Everything carries energy and that energy is generated into each piece by the designer, manufacturer, factory worker, etc. Each touch must possess a positive radiance that will directly benefit the product’s recipient.”
SALMAN™ Designs, Inc:
SALMAN™ Designs, Inc. originally started as Chrome Canine in 2008 by Salman Sajid. It all started when Salman wanted to create a unique collar for his puppy Akita named Tri-Tip aka: “The Poopy." Salman’s undying love for all animals and humanity are his true inspirations for these designs. Salman wanted the designs to offer style and comfort without compromising originality.
Since then the company has morphed into SALMAN™ Designs, Inc. that carries a line for humans as well. Each of the designs are original, hand-made, and pristine in character with the utmost attention to detail; everything about these accessories sets them apart from anything you have ever seen before. Using a unique process where the precious and semi-precious stones are actually riveted through the metal and skin of the accessories, providing a lifetime of style and stability.
Salman was born in Pakistan, on July 16, 1975. At the age of two, he and his family moved from Pakistan to San Francisco, California. At that time all five of his family members (mother, father, sister, brother and himself) lived in a 1-bedroom apartment. He is the youngest of three siblings. At one point, all five family members slept in one bed. His father worked hard to feed the family and his mother did her best to raise the children with love.
His father died on January 13, 2000, and at the age of 25 Salman’s awareness of the unconscious mind began. In 2001 he graduated from California State University, East Bay, with a BA degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in Marketing.
Salman has done everything from bartending and owning Honey Events, LLC, a successful events company, to building his most recent company SALMAN™ Designs, Inc., which has a strong presence in the United States and in Brazil. Salman’s undying love for all animals and humanity are his true inspirations for his designs.
