Entitled “A Thobe Story,” the exhibit features a collection of 10, Palestinian culture inspired, garments made by native craftspeople.
The collection of the traditional thobe garments features patterns that reflect Naqsh Collective’s stories of Palestinian cities; Gaza, Acre, and Jaffa. More interestingly, the conceptual collaboration was created by female-led initiative, 81 Designs and Naqsh Collective to convey the evolution of the thobe over time, whilst the designs revere rich Arab history and culture.
“A Thobe Story” will be presented at this year’s virtual Abu Dhabi Art. Each thobe from the collection is priced at $10,000 and can be viewed via private showing, a public viewing, or virtually online.
