My Home textile is an exclusive mix of Scandinavian and Arabian styles
Home textile from a Scandinavian tale of 1001 nights
My home textile design style embraces the many rich influences the path of my life has crossed. From my country and culture of origin, Iraq, to those of my two countries of adoption, Sweden and the Netherlands.
My early work was inspired by Iraqi folklore, the history of Babylon and the elements from the Sumerian and Muslim cultures and arts. It was characterised by the intricate patterns, painted on clothes in swirls of warm bright colours.
The fresh breeze of Sweden then blew. The colour palette shifted towards the pure limpid colours of the Scandinavian landscape, with the particular emergence of white. Patterns were simplified, sometimes almost minimalised.
New techniques learned in Sweden and the Netherlands have offered a wealth of new possibilities and combinations, both in colours and structures.
The collection presented in this webpage shows a perfect blend of these elements. While the patterns clearly arise from the Arabic kalligrafie and lines and curves straight from the 1001 Nights, the techniques used and fabrics produced incorporate Northern influences, as does the colour pallette. Not to forget a sprinkle of silver and gold to complete the fairy tale atmosphere.
Stylist for exclusive home textile
You like to give your home interior or hotel textile a makeover and are considering to use textile art, a tapestry or a textile painting. Your bed or sofa could use a refreshing look with unique cushions or a new plaid or a bedspread. Your style is exclusive and you want a unique design with a touch from Oriental and European cultures. You prefer to have hand-made exclusive finished products with perfect finishing. You want to feel the love and craftsmanship for the finished design.
Scandinavian 1001 nights home textile design inspiration
When living in Sweden the bright and clear skies impress and inspire me for new designs. First the colors are completely different compared to my country of birth. The ice, the snow and the huge difference in temperature are life changing but sources of inspiration. In addition the minimal use of colors, the sunlight that reflects from ice and snow inspire me to take this completely new environment as the basis for my designs. Using textures kept in my memory and stored already during my childhood this results in a unique concept, which I proudly present as my Scandinavian 1001 Nights collection of interior textile designs.
The pictures above show only a small selection of my complete collection.
