REI by Omar Khan

The inspiration for this collection lies in the ancient Japanese art known as kintsukuroi, whose practitioners use resins enriched with precious gold, silver, and platinum to mend broken pottery. By imbuing these damaged pieces with a luminosity not present in their original form, these craftsmen embrace the whole history of an object, treating age and breakage as things of beauty to decorate and embellish rather than to disguise.  The designs within Rei echo these beliefs, celebrating the damaged made whole again.
