By weaving the worlds of Talli and Marquetry together, Irthi and Nada Debs launch a collection that represents a contemporary interpretation of the vases and vessels carried by Bedouin tribes. This collection initiates a dialogue between two crafts from different worlds and weaves them together to create an entirely new identity. The crafts٬ although similar in appearance٬ involve very different processes and materials. One practiced predominately by men is produced using wooden cross sections that are assembled together and then shaved using machine tools٬ while the other is hand-woven by women using cotton and metallic threads. Through their application٬ an exchange happens as the Talli becomes solid while lending its supple characteristics to the Marquetry. The forms٬ typically used for copper pots, are translated in solid oak and woven with narratives uniting the journeys and expertise of craftsmen and craftswomen from different parts of the region. The result is a contemporary collection of multifunctional bowls٬ elongated vases and stackable seats that can be used as center pieces in the home.
