Description

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.

This piece has been produced during the “Design Labs” initiative by Irthi Contemporary Crafts Council.
