self portrait by Shahad Arzouni

14 year old Shahad´s self portrait in babaà


Many times our customers are our biggest inspiration.

Meet Shahad, age 14 and already as talented as you can see and way beyond that. We asked her to do a self portrait wearing a babaà of her choice and keep her jumper as payment. She drew herself in two different techniques and she also drew her sister wearing her very own babaà jumper from years ago. We keep those drawings in our studio like treasures.

We are so happy to know that she now wants to explore this talent as a career. 14 year old girls have a lot to say! and we wanted to share that. We wish you all the best dear Shahad!

Thank you Muna ( her mama ) for allowing this to happen and Shahad for your beautiful work.
