The newest carpet collection from Lebanese designer Nada Debs was launched Friday, as part of a collaboration with an Afghan carpet manufacturer that aims to employ underprivileged women in Afghanistan.To create the "You and I" carpet collection, Dibs worked with the Fatima Bint Mohammed Initiative, or FBMI, an Afghan carpet manufacturing enterprise that focuses on employing underprivileged and disenfranchised women in Afghanistan in the handmade carpet sector."Our main focus is on heritage preservation and craftsmanship, and Nada stood out immediately; first because she is a woman, and second because she works on Arabian crafts and Arabic traditions, which we value a lot".The carpets were woven from organic materials, into designs mixing contemporary and traditional themes -- a duality that runs through most of the handmade pieces on display in her studio.
