After attending a 9-month workshop in 1972 and learning the skills from her mother and older sisters, Najat took up knitting, crochet and embroidery. In 1997, she attended another workshop on the art of taree, a unique embroidery technique, and learnt new skills, such as oya, on YouTube. Najat has managed to develop and adapt traditional skills and techniques into her craft, giving her clothing an elegant and modern twist.
