Anamil (Fingertips) by Huda Al Aithan is a suspended pendant light that celebrates the regional craft of ‘Safeefah’ (palm frond weaving). The unorthodox design is produced in collaboration with Emirati craftswomen. The timeless metal frame is wrapped with 12 metres of handwoven Safeefah. The metal morphing with Khoos (palm fronds) acts as a timeline, conveying the past, present and future in a single work. The light aims to preserve and evolve the practice of the craft and its community of practitioners. It is designed to share the story of local, female Safeefah weavers with future generations of craftswomen.
