Managing Director, Eyefix International Ltd
“I am excited to show new undiscovered textile designs from location like Afghanistan, Myanmar and Ethiopia, which are now emerging from the burden of conflict and climatic tragedy. I want to show this artwork to my customers to say, ‘You can have some of this. You can see how you can develop new products, have new collaboration and production opportunities in these exciting countries.’ We should be working with artisans to develop their own style and developing their own style and developing it for the international market. The artisans gain economically and customers get to explore new beautiful textiles, clothes and furnishing that have a rich history.”
