I was at Sadu House earlier today and was able to get a sneak peek at Zeri Crafts exhibition that will be taking place this afternoon there from 5:00PM-8:00PM 😉 The exhibition will continue till May 9th: May 8th from 9:00AM – 1:00PM and from 4:00PM to 8:00PM and May 9th 9:00AM to 1:00PM
I was there during their set up and got a chance to talk to Ms. Laila AlHamad, who explained the concept to me! The name Zeri itself refers to the gold threads that embellishes the traditional gowns… a simple black abaya can turn into a new different lively piece with zeri in it, right? 😉 What did they do this time? Breathe a new life into the traditional looking sadu through a collaboration with Carol Cassidy on a collection of woven items inspired by the Kuwaiti bedouin weaving, fusing the luxurious quality of Lao weaving with the different striking patterns of Sadu…
They are also showcasing a “Mabkhar” (picture above and below) designed for Zeri Crafts and was unveiled at Nedda El-Asmar’s London exhibition “The Passion of Simplicity”.
