In this episode our founder Nour Hassan interviews French artist  Louis Barthélemy on his cross-cultural collaboration with Egyptian heritage handmade rugs staple Kahhal Looms and luxury hair care icon Oribe, bringing ancient Egypt to life with the "Eternal Rituals" limited-edition holiday box sets. 

Kahhal Looms and Barthélemy, reunite to create an astounding tapestry that was unveiled December 2023 at an Oribe event in Los Angeles. The initial partnership between Kahhal Looms, who’s long-rooted legacy is renowned for excellence in artisanship in handmade rugs, and Barthélemy, a multidisciplinary artist with a deep commitment to preserving traditional crafts, birthed the phenomenal, “Weaving Eternity” collection presented at the Grand Egyptian Museum in Egypt. The second collaboration between the two, reinforces Barthelemy's fascination with blending the rich history of ancient Egypt and the exceptional craftsmanship of Kahhal Looms.
