THE ART OF HERITAGE GARMENT AND TEXTILE COLLECTION MUSEUM PROJECT.

The Art of Heritage Group, since its foundation, has been dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Saudi cultural heritage. The group works towards that end by training and employing Saudi women to restore and reproduce the collection.

Guardians of a unique collection of authentic Saudi heritage garments, jewelry, household artifacts and textiles, Art of Heritage and its Board Members carefully assembled this collection over a period of more than 25 years.
From this rare, original source material, Art of Heritage has created another unique collection – modern reproductions of those authentic garments and household items that are now developed into a sustainable, heritage based retail line.
The collection also includes rare documents and more than 93 original doors from old forts and homes documented, preserved and stored.

This priceless, irreplaceable ethnographic collection of nearly 9,000 items representing the traditions, and cultural identity of Saudi Arabia has rarely been publicly exhibited and not yet as a formal museum show. It is now in the process of being curated and will soon be ready to exhibit.

PRESERVING THE PAST, BUILDING THE FUTURE

• The long term goals of Art of Heritage are clear:
• To create a research program that will curate the Heritage Collection and provide deeper insight into the origins and history of the garments and their symbology;
• To begin a program of exhibitions leading up to a major international travelling show of the antique garments and the reproductions;
• To enter the world of retail – without losing its commitment to excellence in the production of its handmade items;
• To work on a semi-governmental and institutional or corporate level with similar programs inside and outside of The Kingdom;
• To publish excellent books and research that document the incredible variety and beauty of the garments and artifacts that form the collection.

The group’s long term objective is to work with major museums to exhibit the collection in the correct setting and further one of our most important goals – the importance of creating positive awareness towards the preservation and promotion of Saudi Arabian and Arab cultural Heritage.

A final home suitable for this remarkable collection is being prepared in Riyadh.
