Arab- Imbued with the soul of Islam, the collection has geometric patterns in Blues with dabka and kasab zardozi work.
Spain- Inspired by the famous embroideries of Morocco, the collection is highly graphic and geometric- in red, fuchsia and orange with ombre effect in metallic mediums and satin stitch work.Berber- inspired by the original nomads of Morocco and their signature hena it entails antique gota work in the hues of dark burgundy and old rose
