Wood items have been specially hand-crafted by Zhak Rietti. Each hoop is combined with Namarietti's signature sculpted sillks available in natural and soft pink. These silks are hand-spun in India and are named Aleena Silk - (Arabic for paradise). Photographed in The Park of Olives, Israel - an artistic environmental project planned and realized by the artist Ran Morin (1987-1997), The olive trees, symbolize strength, fertility, and peace. The Olive Columns are situated on top of the Ramat Rachel Mountain, on the axis connecting the center of Jerusalem to Herodion, overlooking the ancient main entrance to Jerusalem – the ‘Patriarchs’ Road’.

About the Designer
Na'ama is based in London, United Kingdom. She studied at Kingston university and graduated in 2010. Her collections are produced in United Kingdom.
Often beginning with a concept or idea rooting from a particular view on the world, humanity and evolution Na'ama is an artisanal designer exploring aspects of her own identity or particular influence from emotional life experience using experimental pattern cutting and development of unique hand-crafting skills to create beautiful, extraordinary and exotic artwear and aparel. ''Colours, materials and textures often relate to memories of my surroundings traveling through Israel and Greece growing up with sandy deserts, softly colored skies, stone floors, white buildings, rocky mountains and middle-eastern handicrafts and artifacts.'' Exploring ideas through drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, film and photography, many ideas often derive from ambiguous images resembling creatures or bodily forms which seem to emerge from imagery during the creative process. ''It is exploring the root, the basic core of our being, of humanity ...the reason for war, for love, for peace and our existence which drives my creative interest. It is about the continuum of life and creation, of evolution and the inevitable of the human condition - the intervention of animalistic tendencies combined with our search for spiritual understanding.''
