The Norias of Hama is a series of 17 norias, historic water-raising machines for irrigation along the Orontes River in the city of Hama, Syria. Specific dates are known for the two exceptionally large norias from their inscriptions: Noria al-Muhammadiya, created in 1361 CE and Noria al-Ma’muriyya in 1453 CE. A 13th-century regional historian wrote that norias existed in Hama in the late 9th century CE with Norias in use near Hama by 350 CE, judging from mosaics and tiles bearing images of norias at a city close to Hama.

About Native Threads

We are a multifunctional lifestyle collective that celebrates the rich history and culture of the Middle East. Our unique designs are inspired by vintage Middle Eastern elements, combining them with modern fashion to create clothing that is both stylish and meaningful. At Native Threads, we believe that fashion should not only be a form of self-expression, but also a way to celebrate and preserve the traditions and heritage of the region while resonating with the experiences of those living in the diaspora.
