Ali works with traditional techniques such as quilting, embroidery and natural dyeing, inspired from the natural and magic world. Her creations, including quilts, pillows, jewelry and other objects, are all hand-made, stitched and dyed, and showcase incredible craftsmanship and attention to every detail.
