Inspired by ceramics produced in Iznik, an Ottoman town in western Anatolia, from the last quarter of the 15th century until the end of the 17th century. Iznik artists combined traditional Islamic Ottoman motifs with motifs from central Asia, Persia, and China, resulting in a variety of intricate botanical and geometric patterns. The collection uses Iznik motifs in a fun way and incorporates garden-inspired colors to complement the traditional blue colors.
Inspired by the embroidery and motifs of the captivating Siwa Oasis in Egypt's Western Desert. The traditional colors represent the different stages of the ripening of dates, Siwa's staple.
