Arati Devasher: Hand Painted Textiles

About

Arati Devasher's one-of-a-kind scarves, ties and accessories are created in her West London studio. Each scarf or tie is a unique piece of wearable art from this one-woman small business. Bright colours and quirky patterns bring to the fore Arati's Indian heritage of pattern and colour blended with a modern aesthetic for everyday use. Her unique pieces are colour-fast, hand-washable and luxuriously packaged ready to gift.

Manufactured

Every piece is individually designed and painted by Arati Devasher at her studio in London. It begins its life as pure white china silk. Arati brushes on eco-friendly hot soy wax or water-soluble gutta and dyes in multiple layers on painted silk pieces. Fabric for the silk ties is painted and then sent off to be made up in Kent. You can follow me and learn more about her process on instagram @adevasher.

Components

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.
