Born in a Berber family, I grew up in an artistic and artisanal culture in Algiers and Paris.

My mother taught me to sew when I was 7 years old. She made many pieces for me using techniques like crochet, broidery and knitting, among others.

Since then, her creativity and originality have continued to inspire what I make with my hands.

BERBERISM is my design concept. Leather is the principal material: It is at the same time flexible and rigid, folk and rock, legendary and futuristic.

My process is like a trance. I love repetitions, kinetic energy and "decoupage/collage" ,

Everything is hand made and hand sewn.
