Bring the beauty of the natural world into your home with Silsal’s new Sarb collection, created in collaboration with homeware design house, AYA – The Art of Living. A celebration of life and nature, the mesmerizing collection is a timelessly evocative tribute to the Arabian Peninsula’s most beloved birds – the BulBul, Hoopoe, Falcon, European Goldfinch, Bee-Eater and Rock Pigeon.
A natural transit point for birds migrating between Asia, Africa and Europe, the Arabian Peninsula is home to hundreds of stunning birds from 65 families. The six birds featured throughout the Sarb collection were selected thanks to their beloved status across the peninsula. The collection aims to highlight these remarkable creatures, deconstructing and amplifying their natural beauty, while raising awareness about the importance of conserving their delicate natural habitats.

Instantly recognizable, the loveable Hoopoe is never hard to spot, thanks to its striking mohawk and distinctive black and white wings. Listen carefully to hear its call, which sound like cries of “Hoop Hoop”.
The falcon can be found soaring high over the rolling desert, in search of game. With pointed wings and a recognizable black crown of feathers, this raptor is the undisputed King of the Peninsula.
The European Goldfinch
The star of poems and symphonies, the European Goldfinch is loved for its sweet, tinkling song. With a distinctive red face, and black and yellow-tipped wings, it’s a visual masterpiece.
Found across Africa, the Middle East and Asia, this playful songbird is characterized by its long elegant tail, short, rounded wings and delicate feet. Its olive-green feathers are punctuated by dramatic red vents.
The Rock Pigeon
A strong and swift flyer, the plump Rock Pigeon is celebrated for its ability to navigate its way home, across deserts and valleys, which offer few navigational landmarks.
Brightly colored, with red, yellow, blue and purple feathers, the Bee-Eater feasts on wasps, bees and other insects. A treat for the ears, as well as the eyes, they harmonize in joyful chorus.
