Wihdeh Collection Concept:
This collection has introduced the language of embroidery, where every group of stitches is referred to as a ‹unit›. From there comes nisreen and nermeen’s inspiration, stemming from their strong belief in the spirit of unity they created this line ‘Wihdeh’ using one motif of embroidery (a unit of embroidery pattern) to create their own modern interpretation -as a designer and an architect- to embroidery, shedding the light on the beauty of embroidery unit and bringing together the delights of their culture. Two prominent elements are present in this piece; embroidery which gives the cultural feel, and naqsh collective strokes transcending the regular forms of embroidery motifs into modern compositions. Those two elements are presented through the engraved surface enhanced with brass, to create a minimal feel added to their designer personalized dimension.
Exhibition is on view from 23rd January - 30th January
