Soma Gallery will host Fabrics of Hope, an exhibition of fabrics by Nourhan El-Nemr in support of cancer patients and underprivileged women, on 8 April.

El-Nemr presents a line of fabrics featuring the drawings and artworks of children who are battling cancer.

The children were inspired by the works of Picasso, Henri Matisse, Klee and Kandinsky.

The line aims to empower those suffering from cancer, while supporting the underprivileged women who worked on fabrics.

El-Nemr is a product and fabric designer who is currently studying political science alongside business and economics at the American University in Cairo.

In 2016, she attended the ‘Design for Happiness’ course by designer Shosha Kamal, which set her on the design path.

She aims to create products with a meaningful philosophy, rooted in social responsibility.

The exhibition opens on Monday, 8 April at 7pm, and closes on 11 April.
SOMA Art School and Gallery, 1 El-Adel Abo Baker Square, Zamalek, Cairo
