To create these collections we conducted an interesting reasearch on the origings and development of the Egyptian Kjaiameia fabrics. Our investigation took us to Kjiameia street in the neighbourhood of Jkan el Jkalili,the famouse street market, The street is  lined up with countless  workshops where young and old artisans create the hand- made kjaiameia fabrics using patchwork techniques. We also discover  that this craft is centuries old and its origins are found on the interior designs of the desert nomad tribes tents.

The Fabrics we used for our inspiration are the commercial version of the original patchwork ones. They are widely used in Egypt for decoration specially during festivities, they also build tents for celebrations in the middle of the city. They can be in  cotton or polyester and in vivid bright colours.                          For my collection I extracted the arabesque motifs of the fabrics reproducing them in polymer clay that I after painted and barnished by hand.With each design I created necklaces, earings, bracelets, brooches and hairbands.I also used pieces of the fabrics to add the color and the texture of the Egyptian textiles, in some cases I created fringes with it. The stones and glass pieces have been bought both in Cairo and Istambul where I also bought some of the metal hanging pieces with shapes as the fatimid hand.

On May 2010 I met by chance at Townhouse gallery in Cairo the Danish designer Pia Busk. We became friends and together decided to create two accessories collections to be presente together and with a common Egyptian theme. The arabesques of the kjaiameia Egyptian fabrics........
We decided to present the resulting collections during the Copenhagen fashion festival, and here are the pictures of the fashion show....
Pia Busk created a wonderfull collection of hand made handbags and computer cases. I created jewelery and hair accessories using polymer clay, the kjaiameia fabrics and semipretious stones.
