Nesrine is a young Montrealer of Tunisian descent who lived for a long time between Montreal and Tunis. It was in 2010 that she finally settled in Quebec’s metropolitan city of Montreal. She studied visual arts and new technologies and she has BAC in industrial design. During her school career, Nesrine saw her vision of design and crafts evolve and began to explore different horizons.
She had a deep desire to combine multiple cultures in her work. One summer, she had the idea to create Atelier Hlow. the brand’s creations have been a way of bridging her origins and her adopted culture. By incorporating Arab-Islamic art in her illustrations, she creates contemporary pieces, very “hlow” with a touch of North Africa. In the future, Nesrine wants to collaborate with artisans to explore the marriage of design and craftsmanship to create durable, colorful and historic pieces.
