Through delicate finishings and fine machine production ebbing with ingenuity, nisreen and nermeen abu dail founded naqsh collective in Amman, Jordan in 2010. naqsh collective instantly became a conceptual framework reflected in the unique pieces of art and their intricate collaboration with design. A harmonious union between the oriental and the modern; naqsh integrates aspects of art, architecture and heritage through minimalism that brushes on sophistication. A union that fits perfectly into the pace of modern life, to be enjoyed for its shapes, meanings and compositions.


The two sisters find inspiration from the contemporary simplicity and the traditional arabic aesthetic, combined together with high quality local craftsmanship.
