“Ra7 nwale3a” is an arabizi colloquialism that means “light it up.” The graphics are drawn from common fabric swatches and combined with chains from the gold souq and strings of pearls. These garments are screen printed in Portland Oregon, Puffy white and metallic silver on American Apparel zip hoodie and tri-blend track shirts.
This project uses patterns designed by Sara Al-Afifi. Thanks to Sara Shaaban for her insight on arabizi colloquialisms!!
