Oman designer wins UK contract
Muscat, July 1, 2013
Omani designer Shadya bint Salim Al Ismailiya has won a contract to design and make exclusive dinnerware for TG in the United Kingdom.
TG is a leading fine bone china, crystal and silverware high-end store in the world, and holds two warrants to supply the British Royal family with their household.
Al Ismailiya's exclusive jewellery designs and dinnerware, under her brand name 'Deema Oman', are inspired by Islamic art as well as Oman's cultural heritage. She has participated in several local, regional and international exhibitions, said a statement.
"The designs and products I create are costume made for a specific customer. Therefore, customers are guaranteed that the designs made for them will not be repeated for another customer," said Al Ismailiya.
Al Ismailiya was chosen to represent designers of the Middle East region as part of the celebration of 150 years anniversary of life and legacy of Sir Henry Royce.
In January, she was short listed among 12 designers worldwide to attend the celebration set to take place towards the end of this year in London, said the statement.
"My plan is to set up a manufacturing unit in Oman and expand regionally. I am currently working with the National Business Centre, which falls under the umbrella of the Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (PEIE), to support me in developing my business as well as identify a suitable location for the factory," she added.
Deema collection also caters to corporate gifts as well as high quality home linens, with support from the PEIE. – TradeArabia News Service
