Every single product is a unique piece of wearable art, individually hand painted by me, using hot wax, gutta and dye on pure white silk. I'm exploring other natural fabrics and will add them to my shop soon. I've combined my Indian heritage with a modern aesthetic fuelled by my training as a graphic designer; my scarves, ties and jewellery feature repetitive patterns inspired by nature, with vibrant colours bringing them to life. I try to bring the practical aspect in as well, modelling my designs on how I would wear them myself. They are colour-fast, hand-washable and luxuriously packaged.
The silk is currently sourced via British and EU suppliers from China (which is still the best producer of top quality silk). The fiber-reactive dyes used are made by a family-owned and operated company in the USA and conform to ASTM 4236 labelling standards for non-toxic materials. The hot soy wax used in the batik-style technique is an eco-friendly, sustainable resource. Packaging materials are all sourced from British manufacturers and made from recycled card and paper from sustainable forests. All paper used in the making process is recycled; tools, office supplies and materials.
