Last night in Amman, Widad Kawar inaugurated the Tiraz Centre, a wonderful home for Arab dress, as part of the Prince Claus award ceremony celebrating her remarkable work and collection of some 45 years. The museum has been beautifully created in a Kawar home building (#19 Riyad Al Mufleh Str) by interior designer Maha Kawar, and the blueprint exhibit by Syntax brings to life Widad’s lifetime labor of love. The Tiraz Centre is about the stories of our history and cultural heritage. It is about the stories of the women wearing their lifetime journeys. It is a home that stitches together the colorful and complex fabric of who we are, where we’ve been, and urges us to walk away reflecting deeply on where we’re going.
