Block Print Influence December 09 2013, 0 Comments

The artist Anwar Behbehani recently talked to Khaleejesque Magazine about the inspiration she received from ecru’s creative director Nur Kaoukji during Nuqat’s 2012 block printing workshop. 

Nur gave a speech during Nuqat’s 2012 conference and a small workshop on block printing, which led Anwar to create a print that she used in products produced by Sadu House and sold at this year’s Nuqat’s Culture Shock Confrence.  It is a delight to see a young artist use an ancient technique in her work, and we love working with artisans in creating block printed products.  The full article on Anwar’s experience in Nur’s Nuqat workshop can be found here.
