It happened over coffee with textile designer and founder of Archive New York, Amira Marion. It was a cold January morning in New York and I was yearning for color. We were looking at my photos of Morocco when we stumbled across a photographic tile study I had done and inspiration struck. We decided then to collaborate on a series of prints for Kahina based on these images, the first of which is the wrapping for our Rosemary Lavender Argan soap.
This is the original tile, discovered in Fez:
For Archive New York, Amira creates graphic interpretations of traditional Guatemalan prints to use in a beautiful line of home textiles. Her line, launching this month, is already selling out at Steven Alan in New York. She brings her fresh take on traditional design to create the beautiful papers enclosing our soaps.
