What's your favourite piece, and what's the best sell­ing item?

ArabAd - - COVER STORY -

It's very dif­fi­cult to choose a favourite piece. I re­ally like them all, be­cause I don't paint any­thing I don't like and each time I am paint­ing a piece it be­comes my favourite.

How­ever, if I had to choose, it would be YES for its sim­plic­ity; Bon­jus for this beau­ti­ful pineap­ple and Waraq el Sham for the ori­en­tal in­tri­cate de­sign.

As for the best sell­ing items, I may say Bon­jus and yel­low Chi­clets. Then comes the rolling pa­per (waraq el sham).

Is the younger gen­er­a­tion in­ter­ested in your pop of­fer­ings? If so how do you ex­plain this ap­peal it has on them?

My typ­i­cal cus­tomer is the per­son of my gen­er­a­tion who had the same child­hood and re­lates the same way I do to all these brands and ob­jects. I also make sure that even though they are hand painted, they re­main at a rea­son­able price so they are af­ford­able to all. They also hap­pen to be prac­ti­cal fur­ni­ture. For ex­am­ple, my re­vis­ited tabliyeh is ideal by the bed and can be placed in the lap and used as a small ta­ble for the lap­top or a cosy break­fast in bed.

Some­times, it just feels good to re­mem­ber how it was to hold a Bon­jus at a birth­day party.
