Our second collection is dedicated and inspired by Palestine, specifically, the bedouin city of Beersheba; the capital of the Naqab Desert.
The mystic, piercing eyes of the bedouin woman, steered the whole collection. Barely revealing their eyes and hands, yet conveying so much femininity and love of life through their elaborately embroidered, colourful, embellished garments.
In this collection, Beersheba ( بيرالسبع ) we combined the very delicate and the rough; pure silk fabrics embellished by antiqued brass, embroidery of bold colours and strong shapes.
