Unique hand painted artwork inspired by the infinite complexities of nature. Digitally printed and hand finished to become wearable pieces of art.
Inspired by the infinite complexities of nature, Alice Acreman Silks is a luxury art brand creating beautiful, illustrated pieces to be worn and to adorn your home. Made from high quality fabrics and crafted with careful consideration for the planet.
Each print is handmade by Alice, using a mixture of watercolor painting, sketching and collage before being digitally printed. Vivid colour palettes compliment the romantic and exotic artwork. Unexpected combinations of weird creatures, bold tropical florals, and contrasting delicate blooms create a unique style. Intertwining undersea creatures with wild flowers and intriguing insects, the designs are full of character and unlike any other.
Inspired by the traditions of textile design, each item is printed in small quantities made to be loved for years to come with hopes to inspire other to move away from the fashion trend. Supporting enviromental charities with donations from each sale.
The Design process begins with hand painting and arranging motifs on paper, cutting and sticking into place. I often look at my collection of vinatage scietific illustration books for inspiration. Animals bring personality to my designs and are often the most striking feature. They can be very time consuming to draw but also rewarding when a character starts to appear on the page. I paint as often as possible mainly using water colours but sometimes gouache too, I find it quite relaxing but I also need to switch off from distractions for the best results.
Layering artwork drawn on different paper textures, I arrange the collage until Im happy, each scarf designs can take days or weeks to finalize. The artwork is then scanned and digital file is then sent to the factory to be digitally printed. Once steamed a skilled seamstress handrolls the hems. Folding the scarves mysef and placing them inside the presentation box is the final touch step before shipping out to my lovely customers.
Each scarf is delivered in a custom made box and tied with a bow.
Vegan Suede Cushions are sent in a plstic cover secured with our beautiful stickers.
Packaging is recycled to help look after our lovely planet.
