About Folk Glory:
Folkglory was founded by Salua Qidan, an architect by training and designer-turned-heritage-researcher.
Salua started Folkglory inspired by her ongoing work with Widad Kawar, one of the world’s leading collectors and authorities on the culture of Levantine and Arab dress-making traditions. Salua is a founding team member of Tiraz — The Widad Kawar Home for Arab Dress, where she continues to serve as Creative Director.
In her journey of over a decade in Levantine dress making and weaving crafts, Salua immersed herself in the knowledge of experts and scholarly sources. But equally as important were her countless encounters with local embroiderer women and other craft makers. It is they, those who are toiling away to make a living from their craft, who are truly keeping the Levant’s fast-eroding traditions and techniques alive today.
