The Magic of Slow Design Art at Take Caire

Traditional Crafts, designs and heritage through  environment in innovative style at Take Caire

CAIRO: A chilly Cairo winter. But the French Institute  and Culture Center in the Mounira district offered a gift for passionate fans and scholars. The Take Caire art exhibition showcases the dazzling craftsmanship and artisan-ware of local designers and talented artisans. A colorful display  of wood carving, glass blowing, new look brass accessories and handmade carpet weaving. Moreover, sculptured marble cups and up-cycling jewelry styled after exotic Pharaonic Fashion.

Inspiration

Sylvie Blanchet is the project leader and lived in Cairo for the past 12 years. She was inspired by the energy radiating from the unique talents and craftsmanship. Lots  of traditional designers and artisans – rooted in their ateliers in hypnotic medieval  Cairo alleys and  antique shops.

Passion for art, vision and design

Emilie Kartsonas, the energetic co-founder of the initiative, is an architect and  videographer contributed to the kick off and success of the project. Her Greek roots fuel the sacred undying  passion for art, vision and authentic design.

Local tradition. I met Farah Hassanein, of the German University in Cairo, offered a  highlight of “the ultra philosophy behind the project. She promote local traditional Crafts, designs and heritage through a sustainable environment in an innovative style”.

Cairo and the Great Sphinx

Egypt suffers from a chronic excessive garbage load. The Zabaleen (garbage Collectors) community is being transformed to a creative, productive center.
That yields upcycled carpets, women accessories fabricated  out of soda cans, decorative quilts, and organic paper bags. Mrs. Youssria Sawaris, philanthropist,  was capable of shifting the status of Zabaleen from outcast to respectful and educated citizens.

For this reason, Cairo is a place to visit. Before you head to Egypt, read more about art and Slow design art at Take Caire
