Over the past few months I have been working closely with embroidery artisans from Herfah Women's Cooperative by supporting the artisans on commissions for luxury hotels. This has provided income, economic independence and pride in the local heritage.
For the project itself, we have been developing work taking inspiration from nomadic traditions and regional textiles.
Working with traditional embroidered imagery from nomadic traditions we identified the flower and sprig motifs inspired by desert plants. Amazing contemporary design from an incredible culture.
