Camels are juxtaposed with jets and ancient texts are explored as fervently as the frontiers of modern science. The wisdom of the ages provides a solid foundation for innovation.
Drawing inspiration from these influences, Nelly Cohen, contemporary Israeli designer, combines old world craftsmanship with Leading edge technology.
Nelly, a graduate of Haifa University with a masters degree in French literature has integrated her love of poetry into her designs.
"I start with words" she says.... "The lyric precedes the design"...."when I hear the rhythm I know a winner is born".
