Nafeesa Shams Academy

In a  first of its kind, Toyota Japan executed an agreement with Abdul Latif Jameel (LAJ) – Toyota Saudi Arabia – on which a coordination will be established with  Nafeesa Shams Academy for  Arts and Handicrafts, a Bab Rizq Jameel affiliate, to turn over the rugs produced by the academy, so Toyota Japan will use such prayer rugs to  furnish some of Toyota 's models exported to some Gulf countries. 

Mrs. Jawaher Alzahrani, Director of the academy, said  the work begins 4 months ago and quantities of such prayer rugs have been exported already to Toyota Japan in collaboration with ALJ.

The prayer rugs, however, are made by Saudi females trained at the academy thus the materials are supplied to their houses where  the weaving is implemented. 

Alzahrani also said such prayer rugs produced by the academy found constant demand taking into consideration that nearly 1,500 prayer rugs are shipped to Japan monthly. 

As to craftsmanship, MAlzahrani said the materials and weaving process is subjected to rigid supervision by a team designated by ALJ for quality.  In addition, Toyota Japan ensures the quality of such prayer rugs before putting them inside Toyota cars.

Nafeesa Shams for Arts and Handicraft entered into agreement with ALJ 4 years ago in order to fit Toyota brands an Lexus vehicles shipped to Saudi Arabia with such prayer rugs. As a result, we managed to produce more than 15,000 prayer rug monthly by 250 Saudi females specialized in rugs weaving. — SG
