Murunah Pleats Shawl


 

The main theme for Ukhuwah was inspired by the piece of rug used by Muslim during prayer; the sajadah. Each geomatric patterns symbolize individual sajadah being placed in the mosque. The artisan purposely congregate the patterns on one side and disburse on the other side to tell the story of the situation during this pandemic; the social distancing, which we were once advised to straighten the row ‘merapatkan saf’ for prayer until circumstances need us to be in distance from one another during pandemic.

The white background is chosen as a remembrance of the ‘white flag’ program that we as the rakyat initiated to help each other during pandemic, capturing the spirit of togetherness and helping each other during difficult times in this piece. We must remember that we have each other #kitajagakita

We will however, with God’s will, ‘merapatkan saf’ once again.

Silatur is a story about separation and connection. A silhouette of typical village in one side of the scarf and the Kuala Lumpur city silhouette on the other side. Included in this design is the 4 iconic & tallest buildings in Malaysia; PETRONAS Twin Towers, KL Tower, PNB Merdeka 118 & TRX 106.

The placement of the village and city at each end metaphorically resembles about separation and the logo DONNINGDONNA scattered across the middle of the scarf is to symbolize the internet connection. Due to the road/border closure & limitation of movement, we are unable to physically move about to go places, balik kampong to visit our parents, and so on. However, despite this limitation, we are somehow still able to connect virtually even though we have lost physical connection due to the pandemic.

Physically separated but virtually connected. #jauhdimatadekatdimaya

A garden full of flowers blossoming. The artisan calls this design; Healing Flowers with the name of Shifa’. Shifa’ is inspired by the nature that revive during pandemic due to less pollution. Hand drawn designs of flowers filled the entire scarf. The artisan ponders upon how during the pandemic, the nature seems to be a little greener, the river becomes clearer, the animals happily roaming, and sky becomes brighter. Does it takes pandemic for us to see what it would be like?

A dusty pink based scarf with images of leaves and flowers in pots. A combination of soft hues is a sure choice for pastel lovers. This design was based on the story of us trying to coop with the isolation during pandemic. Some of us venturing into a new hobby of gardening and planting own vegetables. The artisan symbolizes the spirit with the images of plants in pots scattered throughout the scarf. Zahra means flower in Arabic.
