First of all the branding name “Nobu” is derived from our Ancient Nubia which took after Ancient Egypt, in many aspects like art and architecture. Nubia: derived from the ancient Egyptian word “Noob” which means “GOLD”. Hence Nubia is the land of gold mines, ebony and ivory. Modern architecture of Nubia appeared on their houses which were always painted with bright vibrant colors. The walls made of dried mud from the River Nile, geometric figures, plates and saucers hanged on the walls. Therefore decorative motifs appear at the corner of nearly all the buildings.
The village artists invented their own motifs and found their colors in the stone of the nearby hills. Therefore yellow, blue- violet and orange became the dominant color. Nubians use amulets, charms and talismans for good lunch and protection from the evil eye. Our brand Nobu was established by the Egyptian designer and skilled Egyptian artisans, who were captivated with the landscape, dark hills, black rocks, fine yellow and green strips of palm groves.
