Pope Gift

We had the honor to be chosen to design the gift that was presented to His Holiness Pope Francis by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed AlNahyan during his first visit to the UAE.

The gift consisted of a large woven camel leather Mandoos, inspired by the old traditional wooden chest that was used to hold valuable possessions, which included the title-deed to the first church in the UAE placed within a handmade camel leather frame with wooden detailing and an old photo that commemorated the special event.

Materials: Camel leather (woven & plain), Brass hardware, Acrylic & Paper
Dimensions: 90 x 50 x 23 cm
