There is an intrinsic simplicity to our ecological and material culture that would delight the most austere minimalist. A lone palm in the desert, with its vertical majesty, is enough to fill a whole landscape.
Founded in 2010, Zeri Crafts creates contemporary handcrafted pieces inspired by Khaleeji heritage. We work with a group of skilled artisans and designers, and offer our clients a range of unique customizable pieces. Our design approach favors simplicity, sustainability, and functionality.
We draw inspiration from myriad sources; the desert culture inspires values of utilitarianism, asceticism, and modularity. Nature charms us with the simple lines of dunes, the delicate patterns of sea and sand ripples, traditional architecture, geometric patterns and the play of light and shadow. Traditional crafts - sadu weaving, fishing gear, wood-working, clay containers - impart countless lessons on function and form.
