Tell us about you...
My name is Sara. I'm from Egypt. I've been working in Dubai for about three and a half years. I'm a literature major and that's one of the reasons I am passionate about everything related to arts and literature.
We look forward to the start of a New Year for all the quintessential reasons. Brining a new slate to the scene, a fresh start and a new outlook on the year to come. Now's the time to get our predictions out for this year and give you some idea what to expect for up-coming home decor and colour trends of 2017. We hope you enjoy some fresh new ideas for updating your home this year!
You may have come across this 'Chunky Knit' faze recently, as these creative snuggle pieces take the internet by storm this winter. Although, a warm knitted jumper isn't quite what we need living in the UAE, these glorious creations can make beautiful additions to your home decor.
Tell us about you, when did you start creating your product?
My name is Marloes Bruijn (36 years) from The Netherlands. After finishing the Art Academy (Art-Director) I started my company Fates together with my mother in 2005. We created our own bag collection in our own workshop in Kashmir India with a local family. We design shawls and work with local weavers in the West-Bengal India and we travel to Jaipur in India to work with jewellery craftsman and stonecutters for our jewellery collection. We always work with the Fair trade principles.
Tell us about you...
My name is Jan D'Sa. I grew up in Abu Dhabi and now live in Dubai. Though I have a technical background, I am also creative, thanks to my artistic family. My mum is an artist and musician, my dad comes from a musician family. So my siblings and I ended up being musicians and artists of sorts. Currently, I run my own communications consulting business and love events reporting and blogging too.
