Kuwait: Thoughts on History and Sustainability

Kuwait: Thoughts on History and Sustainability

Hardship and survival in a barren land is the story of pre-oil Kuwait. Bas Ya Bahar (1972), Kuwait’s first and only feature film, drilled in us a fear of the sea and of a life of toil and hardship. Likewise, museums, festivals, and theater performances celebrating our heritage drew a clear line between past and present.

ABOUT US

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.
