Embroidered textiles inspired by tradition


I combine hand and digital processes in my embroidered textiles to celebrate heritage techniques within interior and fashion contexts.

Drawing inspiration from inherited traditional textile disciplines such as the art of Jamdani weaving Kamilah reimagines the potential of hand making techniques through digital embroidery to create fresh and elaborate finishes.
