    // INTERTWINED CULTURES TAPESTRY // By Yoni Lefèvre, Sadeq Nedal, Franciska Slaager and Walid Ashtar

    Weaving is a technique that has been deeply rooted in Syrian culture for decades.

    There are thousands of refugees that want to be part of our society. The society where we live in is in transition and we can not ignore it any longer. The focus in this tapestry is weaving these cultures together into something new. An Arabic image is woven together with Western image. The images of two different cultures become one.

    One tapestry is almost finished. The others will follow soon. Each piece is unique and handmade by several people (refugees and locals) in our Studio.

    Size: 1.00 x 2.00 meter.
