For the “Embroidery x Camel Leather” Design Lab, Irthi collaborated with Emirati Khuloud Al Thani’s Atelier to produce embroidered camel leather screens –  transforming haute couture techniques into interior design applications.

The embroidered designs are based on Emirati folktales, or “Al Kharrarif”, an intangible culture that this collection aims to document and pass on. These stories are part of the Emirati collective conscious as most children hear these stories to enrich their imagination, teach them life lessons, or discourage bad behaviour.

Each folktale revolves around a mythical creature or character. This collection illustrates three of these characters: Himarat Al Qaila (The Afternoon Donkey – half woman and half donkey), Um Al Dowais (a seductress who lures men with her gazelle-like eyes and then turns into a monster and kills them), and Salama and her Daughters (sea creatures feared by fishermen). The pieces have been created using Talli braids as well as embroidery on camel leather panels.

About the designer

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
