Samaya, our lead designer will never forget one of her most memorable trips to Egypt, where she witnessed the mesmerizing essence of the Sufi Dance. ‘It was like the dancers had a direct communion with the divine. It was hypnotizing to say the least. That moment in time, that feeling of pure freedom the dancers seemed to experience never left my mind. It was like the Sufi dancers created a personal space in which they were free to explore an intimate journey using the whirling and spinning technique. I was captivated,’ remembers Samaya.
