Nahara is a new fashion label based in London which launched in 2013. Working with artists, Nahara combines traditional art with contemporary design to create unique and sophisticated clothing and accessories.
For the summer 2014 collection we collaborated with Arabic calligraphy artist, Samir Malik, to create a set of large silk scarves with abstract, hand-painted calligraphy designs. With vibrant colours and freeform paint strokes, this collection presents a modern and urban interpretation of an ancient art form. The scarves were digitally printed and made in Como, Italy.
With each new collection, we will collaborate with a different artist, or collective of artisans. Through digital print, embroidery and weaving, we will explore traditional themes, and present beautiful, contemporary collections.
