Located in the historical medieval county of Warwickshire, home of the famous English writer Shakespeare in the United Kingdom. A British Company founded by Ahmed Q, PhD graduate of Cancer Cell Biology, working in medical in vitro pre-clinical drug development, with numerous cancer study publications in UK medical journals. Ahmed’s passion for Islamic architecture of the great Andalucían empire of the Nazrid dynasties, initially begun as a hobby.

Being inspired at a very young age whilst visiting his Father in Spain, where together, they would explore countless historical Andalusian sites such as the Alhambra Palace and the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba and admire the mesmerizing architecture created centuries ago. It was here that Ahmed fell in love with the intricate artwork created by the Moors in Al-Andalus and its Golden Aged Civilization.

In between his studying in the UK, Ahmed would spend his free time carving stucco and creating reproductions of Islamic art that he would gift to family and friends. Encouraged by their reactions, he decided to put some of his artwork on show, and the rest, as they say, is history.
