The world we once knew has completely changed to something almost unrecognizable. Post-2020, most of us find ourselves grieving a life we ​​once knew. Sadness, isolation, fear, and disbelief are emotions that we have all shared over the past two years, but there are lessons in this if you take a closer look.

We learned that without each other, we have nothing. This revelation helped us recognize that, for almost 30 years, we had designed, manufactured, and serviced many Sama fans without close relationships and contact- using intermediaries. We learned to appreciate life and simple pleasures and remind friends and family that we love them. We learned the importance of checking in with others and ensuring they are OK.


We now realize the importance of the connection between the designers, stylists, and the wearer-because of their synergistic relationship. The Pandemic showed us that online commerce and communication have become more necessary than ever before.
At Sama, we are always ahead of our market and any trends. We determined that the future is in accommodating our unique fans and customers who brought us to where we are today.
We will be creating direct communication and touch without any force in between. Sama capsules will be available online, directly to the final consumer.


We have partnered with some of our closest connections-opticians, boutiques, and trendsetters to combine our efforts. Partners that have now joined our effort to reach the final consumer directly--allowing them to be the first to see and experience everything Sama has to offer. It's important to convey that this is only possible because of our customers' love and adoration for Sama.

Should there be a need for another instance that requires isolation, know that you are not alone. Sama is, and forever shall be, right there with you.


Sama has always been willing to take risks to help our clients. It's how we have advanced the industry. And in 2020, this willingness took on a whole new meaning. So many of our friends and families needed help, so we decided to use our resources and do something about it. In January of 2020, we started to transition our production, distribution, and supply chain logistical resources to PPE.

Since the beginning of the Pandemic

We have produced our own KN95 masks, surgical gowns, face shields, safety glasses and goggles, hand sanitizers, nitrile gloves, vaccines, and test kits.

We are also a GPO with Medline and McKesson. We are the only the second distributor of Hartalega gloves in North America and have an exclusive Sama Glove produced by Hartalega.

We also are awaiting the EUA release of two products: a Nasal CoVid Antigen test kit and the world's first rapid Saliva Antigen test kit, both named Sama TESTit. We distribute on five continents and are poised to do so for as long as people, companies, and countries need us.

international philanthropic work

We have now become one of the largest PPE distributors in the world, which dovetails perfectly with our international philanthropic work. Helping people is at the core of what Sama does. If you or someone you know is in need of PPE, please do not hesitate to contact us, and we will do everything we can to assist. Together, we will beat this Pandemic.
