Dover Street Market Fall-Winter '19 Installation

For the launch of our first collection in Dover Street Market New York and Los Angeles, we produced a film and curated an installation to showcase our collaboration with the Bedouin craftswomen from the town of Lakiya in the Negev desert. The film illustrates the intricate craft process as it is carried out by the women of the Lakiya Weaving factory.
Founded by the Sidreh organization, this weaving initiative brings together over a hundred Bedouin craftswomen from the Negev area in the south of Israel, empowering them through employment while preserving their age-old craft and manufacturing items for sale, creating a social enterprise managed by the Bedouin women themselves.
The crafted items mainly include rugs, wall hangings, and cushions, which the women spin, dye, and weave on ground looms using traditional methods. Teaming up with the workshop for Fall-Winter '19, we’ve also exhibited the women’s specialized weaving skills and textiles in the form of an installation that accompanied the collection in both DSMNY and DSMLA.
