Artists Nikki Walker and Darya Bing released their new collection – Fez, exploring the bonds of cultural unity and balance.
Our Fez collection is an exploration of the cultural impact of our ancestry and heritage and those connections with our lives today.
The mark making idea was a natural journey through the stories of the symbol and design motifs across our roots from Māori to Moroccan Jews. We found a wealth of inspiration and parallels between both cultures and worked on a contemporary representation of what we found most authentic for us at present.
The Fez collection brings together elements of weaving as a traditional craft as well as the joint tapestry of our cultural differences and similarities.
These artworks encompass art, religion and mythology as we continue exploring the bonds of cultural unity and balance.
