Hi there, we are Nanou and Ghada, a girl and her future mother-in-law. Weโ€™re the people behind Gems of the world designs. We both have a passion for artisanal creations and all things bohemian. We are based in Sydney Australia and we have a middle eastern ethnicity and culture. This is why weโ€™re fascinated by artisanal work and cultures from different parts of the world!
We came up with Gems of the world designs very randomly. I, Nanou am getting married to Ghadaโ€™s son and would love a bohemian/ Moroccan themed wedding. I have been dreaming of this from before I knew I was getting married and my pinterest board is full of colourful, bohemian wedding photos!
We are also both passionate about home dรฉcor and were looking for nice colourful cushion covers for the wedding dรฉcor. We came across beautiful Indian cushion covers perfect for the theme and then we started looking further into Indian home dรฉcor, accessories and clothing and came across our โ€œDelilahโ€ jackets. We fell in love with the story behind these jackets, they are uniquely handmade by ladies from an Indian village in Rajasthan (Go to Kuteer Art to read about this collection).
Fast forward a few months, we came up with the name Gems of the world designs because we would love to find all the gems and artisans of the world and bring those creations to you as long as they are ethical and sustainable. Our first collection โ€œKuteer artโ€ comes straight from India and we will be expanding our search to other countries soon!
Our goal is to support artisans of the world, bring you amazing and unique products and save up for the wedding! We would love to share our journey with you and we would love for you to be part of it, every step of the way!
ย We thank you for your support.
ย PS: We are not your typical daughter and mother-in-law, we are best friends!

XOXO

Nanou & Ghada
