Woke up at 3am pacific time and worked out a new/old Mamluk Floral illustration to keep the embroidery team in Brooklyn amused! At 6:30 am I trashed the almost finished sample because I hated the awful textile I was testing my illustration on. A perfect shade of Merlot but Brocade or even French it was no. By the time 8:30 came around my new slim super tall newer illustration on Merlot colored plush velvet was beautiful and put me in a better mood. Eleven hours in a row have been lovingly devoted to preparing pretty high quality illustrations-designs for Syrian Folk Art I approve of.
So happy to be designing something empowering for women in general and Syrian American women in particular. Shipped 17 new panels illustrated free hand and yards of French Brocade for Tulip my partner to distribute around in New York. We expect to launch in November. All the Syrian opulent Brocade dynasty dolls are one of a kind and each doll travels from Menlo Park, CA to Portland to New York and back, her clothing is French Brocades and embroidered dynasty art from the hands of many women.
