We have been commissioned by Cartier to design a bespoke scarf around the theme of Peace - Salam, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Cartier Women's Initiative Awards (CWIA).
On this historic occasion, a group of pioneering and inspirational women received one of three exclusive noorsaab scarves. Each scarf was designed with an inspiration from a quote on peace by one of three iconic women who have been instrumental in spreading peace around the world: Aung San Suu Kyi, Rosa Parks, and Mother Teresa.
The pattern of these scarves is constructed using the word ‘Salam’, written in contemporary Arabic calligraphy, and multiplied through an unfolding and cyclical repetition of colourful geometric shapes. The final design is an abstract visual representation of the potential for women's empowerment to help bring peace to a region suffering from continuous political instability.
