Scenes From Khayamia
"Khayamia" is the traditional Egyptian craft of tent making. The term "khayamiya" comes from the Arabic word خيمة "khayma," which means tent. The craft involves creating colorful appliqué textiles by hand stitching various pieces of fabric together. The craftspeople usually reside in Old Cairo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site containing settlements pre-dating the founding of Cairo in 969 AD. This AR poster was created as an homage to Cairo's khayamiya craftspeople.
