What does Amima mean?

Amima comes from the Arabic word ‘Umm’ meaning mother.

It was the name given to the clan who owned the largest caravanserai (also called Khan) in the region now known as Levant. The Amima clan would act as the host of a merchant’s guild of sorts; building Khans, welcoming and servicing other merchants — even foreign ones — and leading trading expeditions to Makkah around Hajj time, among other things. They, and others like them in different regions, were a bedrock of Arab economy, and society in general, at the time.

It is their spirit of entrepreneurial hospitality that Amima is deeply embedded with.
