Alia Ali




In a project that highlights the global interaction of people through fabrics, Alia Ali  challenges current hard right political movements with a photographic exploration of how we are of one earth and that the fabrics which clothe our bodies are international and multicultural, a reflection of us, our stories, culture and environment.
"The People of Pattern Project highlights fabric and textile as a product of our earth, a manifestation of our imagination, a reflection of our environment and an archive of our stories. This project delves into a variety of cultures around the world and discovers them through their unique cultures, physical environments, artisans, textiles and the processes of making them."Alia Ali
