Creative Furniture in Dubai : Handmade Furniture for your kids by Atef Ali

Can you introduce yourself?
Atef Ali handmade Furniture on Melltoo 1
My name is Atef Oowais Ali. I have a passion for designing unique furniture’s for both Adults and Children. I am a Pakistani, born and brought up in UAE. I run a small shop in Deira, “Al Tamir”, and run a small group on Facebook Called “Creative Furniture’s in Dubai” where I display some of my works and Ideas.
 
 
How did you start with children furniture making?
 
It all started after my daughter was born. Living in a small apartment, I had to put a bed for my daughter without taking much space. Looking up at nearby shop and furniture stores I was not able to find any type space saving/ Functional furniture. I thought of trying to make one my self and see how it goes. So I acquired some scrap beds nearby my building and removed all the usable wood. Then I drew up a plan for a small wall mounted baby bed that would fold into the wall when not in use. My wife insisted that when the bed opens up it should be on the same level as our bed. So I got the scrap wood and started making it. Within a few hours during the weekend I made a bed with very very less investment and got it up and running. Then just experimented with the finishing and after a lot of sanding by hand I got a nice simple, yet elegant, smooth finished bed. Thats when I decided that I should share my designs and help people especially those living in small apartment to have functional furnitures and custom made good quality wooden furniture. Its been now 3 years and I have been passionately making these types of furniture as a hobby, using very simple tools and mostly by hand.

What makes your creations different?
 
I want ordinary people to have the best functional furniture’s and unique hand crafted furniture that is not usually available in stores at a very affordable price using hand picked selected lumber. I take their ideas and I am able to generate design that is unique to every customer. It is simple and elegant at the same time and very functional.
 
What was your favorite project?
 
Making of the Moon Baby Crib and the Barn Style Star Bunk Bed. Ever since I made the Moon Crib, I had posted the pictures on Facebook and received a flood of “likes” and orders. That also helped boost my morale as people started appreciating the furniture’s I was making. The Barn style bunk bed was an influence of many beds that I had seen online. I too was surprised with the quality that I was able to achieve with that bed after I completed. Heck my client even gave me a generous tip as part of her appreciation for the work.

NEEYODï, FROM FRANCE TO DUBAI – CHILDREN DESIGNER CLOTHES AND ACCESSORIES BY Maimouna LY

Can you introduce yourself?
 
My name is Maimouna LY. I design children designer clothes and accessories for toddlers and babies. I am French from Mauritanian origin, passionate about art and fashion. I am a mother of 2 daughters.
 
 
How did you start with children designer clothes and accessories?
 
I felt the need to pass my cultural richness through my daughters’ outfits so I started to make their outfits. My career in fashion design allowed me to acquire the necessary knowledge. I later started gifting my work to family and friends. I saw a great interest in my creations, I decided to launch my own brand, Neeyodï was born.
 
 
How Do You Define Neyoodï in One Sentence?
 
It is a brand of children designer clothes and accessories that suit both ethnic-curious  and chic for babies and children.
 
Set Bath Cape And Glove Neeyodï on Melltoo
What makes your creations different?
 
My ethnic inspiration. My creations are made exclusively from Wax. This is an ethnic fabric in shimmering colors and geometric motifs. My designs are 100% cotton. The printing technique is quite unique as well to keep the wax bright. The cloth does not fade and colors have a great fit that allows for a true work of art. I create original pieces, hand-made and made in France: the sketch to manufacturing is all done in my workshop. Each piece is customizable (choice and tissues association) so that each customer can have the design and product that resembles them.
 
 
Does western culture influence your design?
 
The heart of my brand is the association of West African and Western trend. I use a combination of these two universes in all my creations. I use the wax and associates it with the Western united fabrics reflecting the mixing of cultures. The grounds of the printed wax constantly evolving, so my creations will evolve with the trends of ready to wear Western and those of the printed wax. Traditional materials and modern cuts unite to become one.
 
 
What are the steps to make and design a piece of Neyoodï?
 
Steps Neyoodï - Melltoo
Step 1 : Sketching a dress style
 
Step 2 : Sizing adjustments

Step 3 : Choice of different fabrics and materials

Step 4 : Cutting the pattern pieces in the fabric

Step 5 : assembly of parts to the machine

Step 6 : after making the hand finishing, the dress is finished !

You will find my creations on Melltoo 😉
