Behind The Scenes
History of ELAJ
From a street faire in Palm Desert, California to mass retail in less than 7 years? It's an extraordinary story of listening to customers. They really are always right! They guided Suhein Beck in the direction ELAJ needed to go, despite her wanting a different route. But she listened.
Coming to AmericaTheir idealized dream was never doubted and they always felt that success was just around the corner. The Land of Opportunity truly was in America and this family proved that with determination and hard work ~ anything is possible!
What is Circassian?
The right question is actually, Who are Circassians?
We are a cultural ethnic group that has been conveniently deleted out of history books.
In these two videos of Circassian 101, most questions can be answered! From our geography to how many of us remain in the diaspora and in our sacred ancestral land of Kavkazia, also referred to as Cherkassia.
Our art, music, and folkloric dances offer a glimpse into an ancient world. The company, ELAJ, LLC was founded by Circassians. The modern entrepreneurial story cannot be told without understanding the courageous journey from a tragic genocide in the majestic mountains of the Caucasus to their refuge around the world and how they survived ethnic cleansing.
The story of healing is always part of the mission of ELAJ. Not just about skin, but the deeper healing in our souls. This is our story of healing...finally we can bring it to the world.
Let the healing begin...
