Collaborating to support marginalised children to access quality education
Education Above All (EAA) Foundation today announced an inspiring new collaboration with the renowned Brazilian jeweller and designer, Silvia Furmanovich. This groundbreaking partnership will unveil an exclusive collection of opulent jewellery pieces and items designed specially for EAA Foundation, debuting at the Doha Jewellery and Watches Exhibition (DJWE) 2024.
Furmanovich’s visionary designs will be unveiled at EAA Foundation’s dedicated space within DJWE 2024, taking place from February 5th to 11th, at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC). This limited collection, featuring exquisite craftsmanship and inspired by Qatar’s cultural heritage will also be available for purchase at Furmanovich stores in Brazil, and through other Furmanovich partner in the United States in the 3rd quarter of 2024.
A significant portion of the sales proceeds of this collection will directly contribute to EAA Foundation’s impactful projects, supporting some of the most marginalised children globally to access quality education.
Handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail, the collection features materials such as embroidered natural leaves and wood marquetry, seamlessly integrated with gold, precious gemstones and diamonds, reflecting a harmonious blend of cultural inspiration and luxury.
Commenting on this collaboration, Taj Sulaiman, EAA’s Director of Communication and Private Sector Partnerships, said: “We are pleased to be collaborating with Silvia Furmanovich, a jeweller and designer known for her artful works, and commitment to sustainability. This partnership not only showcases the beauty of unique, handcrafted jewellery but also underscores our joint commitment to offer out-of-school children access to quality education. Together, we aim to make a lasting impact on education initiatives in the most marginalised communities, creating a brighter future and fostering positive change.”
The Furmanovich brand, dedicated to uplifting indigenous craftspeople from Brazil, utilises sustainably sourced materials such as wood and leaves from Brazilian forests, combined with precious elements of gold and diamonds, resulting in designs inspired by nature.
Each piece in this limited collection will bear the distinctive plaque, "Silvia Furmanovich for Education Above All," symbolising the commitment to global education initiatives.
In addition to the collaboration with Silvia Furmanovich, EAA Foundation will also showcase selected jewellery items meticulously designed and produced by local Qatari artisans at DJWE. All sales proceeds from these items will be committed to advancing access to quality education in EAA Foundation’s projects.
