Yalla Habibi launches their 2017 collection at More Words!
Specialising in blending the traditional with the modern, Yalla Habibi produces stunning art objects for the home made by traditional local craftsmen.
In the latest collection of embroidered art cushions, Yalla Habibi continues working with artists like Ahmed Anan, Mohamed Sharkawy and Jenine Sharabi, while welcoming new contributions from Perry Elashmawi and Ali Al Mahmeed. The fabric used in framing this art is designed and hand woven in Bani Jamrah, cradle of Bahrain’s textile traditions.
Nathaly, founder of Yalla Habibi, has also started working with the skilled craftsmen of Syria, who have used her original designs to produce a collection of exquisitely ornate wall hangings, wooden boxes and trays, all decorated in mother of pearl, ceramic or silver.
All are welcome!
