This collection of fruit bowls by Emirati designer Shaikha Bin Dhaher and Spanish designer Adrian Salvador Candela embraces the natural qualities of leather. As a permeable material, leather becomes very flexible when wet – it can take on any shape, as though, once again, it has come back to life.

The sculptural, curvilinear forms of this collection take inspiration from desert dunes and the smooth folds in draped women’s veils.

These fruit bowls combine natural leather and subtle Talli weaves, creating a dialogue between two crafts and cultures.

The colours and textures of the leather, which are transformed naturally by water and sunlight, also evoke images of weathered hands weaving Talli threads in perpetual meditative movements.
