Hi, I'm Arati Devasher, and I believe that accessories are the most versatile items in your entire wardrobe. You could be wearing something as simple as a no-fuss top and jeans – just adding a silk scarf, kerchief or necklace instantly elevates it to chic or dapper. You can reinvent your whole look by changing only your accessories.
Sometimes that special piece is so easy to wear you forget you're even wearing it until someone compliments your effortless style. The accessories I make are unique pieces of wearable art, made from the softest silk I can source. They soon become favourites you want to wear every day; I know I do.
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 and 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.
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.
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.
