Description

Irthi x Alia bin Omair Safeefah x Gold Casting Design Labs Collection For the “Safeefah x Gold Casting” Design Lab, Irthi Contemporary Crafts Council collaborated with the UAE-based jewellery designer, Alia bin Omair, to produce gold cast weaves. Bidwa’s artisans* elevated the production of Safeefah weaves into wearable elements by implementing an additional step to the process: casting the weaves in gold. The nimble fingers of the artisans of Irthi’s Bidwa Social Development Programme* have combined their knowledge of Emirati Safeefah weaving techniques with Alia’s designs to produce a collection of necklaces, rings, earrings, and wearable perfume bottles. The artisans wove the palm fronds to execute bin Omair’s vision. A mould was created by imprinting the Safeefah creations in wax, and 18k gold was cast to create the unique collection of jewellery.
