DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

I started with creating rusty and corroded washers that represented the coins. Afterwards, I prepared a stamp out of these washers and used it to print on the fabric. I wove and embroidered braids, I embedded metal buttons that also went through the process of rust and corrosion.

INSPIRATION

My inspiration was Bedouin Tribe in Israel. Within the tribe, I chose to focus on the Bedouin brides that wear a burqa which have coins given to her from the groom’s family sewn on to it, and to focus on the Henna ceremony which the brides go through before the wedding.

MATERIALS USED

The fabrics with whom I sewed the collection are leather combined with knitwear.
