In this conversation, Seif El Rashidi will discuss the over one thousand-year-old tradition of textile appliqué work (khayamiyya) in Egypt and how the aesthetic of the craft has been adapted to cater to international audiences and adopted by contemporary designers. Video footage of master-stitchers at work will also feature as part of this conversation.
Watch our webinar with Hany Abdel Kader and Mohamed Abdel Wahed, two Egyptian master-stitchers who will demonstrate their ancient craft. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caI3Co55BfQ This webinar has been made available by The Barakat Trust and its supporters.
