"Shakera Design is a portrait of my life. As a little girl, amusing myself with drawings of the effervescent bustle of India, I always had a burning passion of following this artistic talent.
Years later, having arrived in the, comparatively tranquil, British countryside, this chance arose. After rising through the educational ranks - earning Bachelor and Masters degrees in Textiles - I wanted to create something that reflected me and my trajectory in life. Shakera Design was born. It represents a harmonious marriage between the colourful flourishes of my native India and the idyllic, haven-like landscapes of rural England. This design philosophy manifests itself in my silk scarves: capturing the beauty of nature's intricacy but with a new-found zealous exoticism. It does not white-wash what is within but instead emboldens and amplifies the sweeping curves and delicate shifts in texture, that only nature can give birth to. The fabric reflects the design it projects: the finest, British-made silk is used to ensure there is durable, yet decadent, substrate for each design - which themselves are hand-drawn on a digital device. Shakera Design is the mantelpiece of my career and it serves to reflect not only my (migrant?) trajectory, but one in which everyone takes part in: as the cultures seamlessly convolute in my designs, they should in the world as well.”
