Adel was born in the old city of Tunis, along the Mediterranean coast. He came to New York in 1998, where he founded his studio. His work draws from his multicultural background, resulting in an attempt to reconcile past and present, nostalgia and hope. His designs emphasize simplicity, wearability, durability, and openness to light and movement. Adel currently lives and works in Woodstock, New York. Exclusively available in Boulder at Art + Soul.
