Hi! I'm Arati Devasher. I believe that accessories are the most versatile items in your entire wardrobe. You can reinvent your whole look by adding just one silk scarf, tie or necklace. I make unique pieces of wearable art, made from the softest silk I can source. They will soon become favourites you want to wear every day; I know I do. I hope you enjoy wearing my accessories as much as I love making them.
Every single piece is individually hand painted by me, using hot wax and dye on pure white silk. 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 pattern, with vibrant colours bringing them to life. They can be worn with plain colours as well as combined with other bold patterns.
I do my best to make sure that I remain eco-friendly and sustainably sourced. My silk is currently sourced via British and EU suppliers from China (which is still the best producer of top quality silk). All my dyes, wax, packaging, tools, office supplies and materials are eco-friendly and responsibly sourced; electricity and water use is kept to a minimum.
All my silks – scarves, kerchiefs, ties and jewellery – are colour-fast 100% silk and can be hand-washed. No dry-cleaning required! Hand-sewn hems are a feature of the scarves and pocket squares, adding a touch of luxury. Everything is beautifully packaged, ready to gift.
