Everything started a crush on these fabrics used in Egypt during the celebrations: weddings, festivals, Ramadan, inaugurations. I buy my fabrics in a neighborhood in old Cairo called "khayameya". Khayameya is an Arabic word meaning "tent". Around these tents embellishment art developed over the millennia using patchwork technique. This technique (called "in applied") sew on a plain fabric pieces of colorful fabrics to achieve a geometric pattern. Patterns printed on the fabric featured here are fully traditional patchwork patterns made by artisans. Today, the term "khayameya". refers to hangings in patchwork, an artisan mastering this craftsmanship, a district of Cairo and fabrics printed in the same spirit: the street "khayameya". To see these stunning curtains, visit my website couleursdunil.fr in the section "Applique - khayameya".
