Ruhal I documents the journey of a woman who fled the Syrian war on foot, walking more than 600km from Northern Syria to Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley. She carries with her the stories of many women, as well as the cities and towns passed along the way, which the designs take the names of. The journey starts in the ancient Syrian cities of Raqaa and Aleppo, continuing further south to Homs and Damascus, before arriving at Bar Elias in the heart of the Bekaa Valley, where the collection was brought to life.
