Balance is the results of collaboration of BCSXY ( Boaz Cohen ans Sayaka Yamamoto) with Sidreh and the women weavers in Lakiya.
Lakiya Negev Weaving is an organization of Bedouin artisans, initiated by Sidreh, a non-profit organization focused on improving the socioeconomic situation of Bedouin women living in Israels Negav Desert.
Balance consists of a series of seven area rugs woven in the Bedouin tradition by the women in Lakiya, Israel. Each rug is hand woven on traditional ground looms using the wool of local desert sheep. From the dying of the yarn to the weaving and final construction, each rug is the result of the collaborative efforts of many of the women in Lakiya. Through a craft that is central to Bedouin social and cultural heritage, the weavers are able to produce an extremely high-quality, durable and beautiful material.
BCXSY is an Amsterdam-based interdisciplinary cooperative between designers Boaz Cohen (Israel, 1978) and Sayaka Yamamoto (Japan, 1984). Offering a balanced combination of two unique talents, the studio delivers one distinct narrative that is characterized by an emphasis on personal experience, human interaction and emotional awareness.View designers page
