Bourya Boury Black Denim Jacket

Repurposed black denim jacket highlighting the nowness of Gnawa culture and music. The design is as simple as the song with a subtle movement of the rhythm interpreted with vintage gold pearls. Finger woven using "twining" technique. Vintage gold and black yarn were used to depict yellow, the spirit of femininity.

  • Artisanal Gnawa I Collection Inspiration
  • For the first series of the Gnawa Artisanal Collection, I was transported as I listened to the different songs whilst creating each piece by hand. I wanted to interpret the rhythm as it transports you through each piece. There are 10 pieces in the first collection and each one is named after a song that I feel is a reflection of the piece. 

    I listened to the music all day and when I work, especially music by Mâalem Mahmoud Guinia, Mâalem Mohamed Kouyou and Hamid El Kasri. As well as interpreting the rhythm, I used colors that are an integral part of the Gnawa culture.
