Newby Teas is proud to have partnered with FBMI to celebrate the craft of fine tea at this year’s Dubai Design Week. Enjoy our favourite luxury teas in a traditional Afghan Tea ceremony, featuring bespoke carpet designs from FBMI.
Through first-class service and expertise, our exquisite tea majlis will offer complementary tea tasting for all design week attendees, with master classes available at 1pm, 4pm and 6:30pm daily. Limited to 6 people per session, early arrival and pre-registration is advised.
The Fatima Bint Mohamed Bin Zayed Initiative is the perfect collaboration for Newby, as both companies place huge importance on craftsmanship and authenticity.
FBMI is an innovative social enterprise that harnesses the traditional skills of the Afghan people to produce beautiful hand-knotted carpets, embroidered furniture and local handcrafts at fair market wages.
Since its launch in 2010, FBMI has employed over 4,000 Afghans; 70% of those employees are women and over a third are widows. FBMI gives their employees and their family access to free healthcare, and their products are marketed and sold around the world.
Being profoundly invested in supporting sustainable business models, Newby Teas is extremely proud to be a part of such a powerful initiative, aiming to support and encourage the historic craft and talent of the Afghani people at Dubai Design Week.
