Rama Jarrar is a young woman who found herself studying a specialty she did not care for. She eventually made the leap to change her life forever by following her passion for art, color, and design.
Upon finishing high school, Rama had no idea what she wanted to study in University, let alone do with her life. She started University studying gymnastics and though she soon realized that this was not something that she enjoyed, she finished the degree regardless. A year after graduating, she returned to University to study graphics and pursue her love for art and design, receiving a diploma in graphics. Again, however, something was not quite right. It was not until she discovered her love for color, as reflected in her playfully colorful pieces and designs, that she found her niche. Though the road of discovery was long and turbulent, 29-year-old Rama has finally found what she loves to do.
Rama has a natural affinity for things that are unique and strange, things that are far from the traditional -- this is how Antekha was born. The pieces found in Antekha cannot be found anywhere else. The team behind Antekha loves to satisfy the curiosity of people looking for exotic things.
The thing that sparked the idea for Antekha was a single cupboard in Rama’s room. Every time she walked by it, she felt as though she needed to change something-- a color, a pattern, a texture. Then one day, she decided to paint it and the result was astounding. It was from there that her style and design began to develop, and her work with Antekha truly began. When she starts working on her craft, everything else in the world melts away, allowing her a creative outlet and a way to express her love for art, color, and design.
