Tales of whispers. The first time I saw Sahariah’s veils, I was astonished by all these poetic names, soaked in color.Let's go inside them.

Arabian Nights. Blazing Desert Sky. Glowing Sunsets. Ethereal skies. Exotic Birds. What else? Waterfall Oasis. Exotic Glow Moths. Island Bloom. Midnight Seas. Fires of Doom. Flaming Hearts. Templars of Steel. This is not a titles’ list. These are veils for bellydancers. The first time I saw Sahariah’s veils, I was astonished by all these poetic names, soaked in color. I had to know something more.

“My inspiration for dyeing silk veils comes from passion for Bellydance. My ideas are intertwined together with imagination and creativity” explains the American artist Sahariah “resulting in Danceable Art, where the silk practically dances by itself”. A whole world with no bounds. A universe made by Middle East and its culture, heavy metal bands, art, objects, fantasy art and anything in Nature.

The result is something mysterious with an exotic flare. The result is a rainbow without end or beginning. Now, her most recent works are inspired by Persian model-bellydancer, Foroogh Mahafsoun, and Portuguese model/bellydancer, Kahina Spirit. “My goal is to have each veil speaking” she happily admits, “as each piece is full of mystery and has a story to tell”.

Tales of whispers. The wind follows her hands. I'm sure her veils now have something new and magic to give and communicate. These simply are the Sahariah's dancing silk tales.
