Arati Devasher: Painted Silk Accessories

About

Arati Devasher creates individually designed accessories, painting and dyeing silk by hand at her studio in north London. She combines her Indian heritage of pattern and colour with a modern aesthetic. Repetition creates pattern, and the vibrant colours bring them to life. Each is a unique piece of wearable art. All the accessories are colour-fast and hand-washable. The scarves have hand-rolled hems. Arati's scarves, ties, pocket squares and jewellery are all luxuriously packaged, ready to gift.

Manufactured

Every piece is individually designed and painted by Arati Devasher at her studio in north London. It begins its life as pure white china silk. Arati brushes on eco-friendly hot soy wax and dyes in multiple layers on painted silk pieces. Her hand-dyed collections are made by brushing dye on to the precisely folded and clamped pieces of silk that create the geometric patterns of traditional Japanese tie-dye (shibori). You can follow Arati 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 are responsibly sourced, and electricity and water use is kept to a minimum.
