Elaborate scarves dominate this collection and range from day to evening - simple to the more avant-garde. Nawal’s work is heavily influenced by tactile textures, the rhythms of nature, Japanese paper-folding and shibori techniques; whist also drawing from her worldwide expeditions through Europe, Russia, China, Japan and the Americas.
Style & Quality
Only the finest man-made and natural fabrics are used. Normally only man-made fabrics will retain their pleats after wear, so most are made from man-made Georgettes and Chiffons woven in Japan. Others are silk-metallics woven by hand, which also keep the pleat after wear..
Each item is handmade, stitched and fused with a variety of fabrics to retain each pleat even after wear or wash. The abundance of technique is extraordinary as is the depth of craftsmanship. Nawal’s ability to work fabrics into art into fashion makes each item personal and unique.
