Creative Director and Designer of Ala Mairi, Fatima, combines the traditional silk crafts from her cultural home with the near-extinct art of Scottish hand loom weaving to match high fashion with ethical living. A dual cultural background, alongside the vibrancy and richness of craftsmanship that both these countries’ has to offer, combine to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Her fantastic collaborations with Scottish hand loom weavers has inspired them to push the boundaries in designing motifs for Ala Mairi. Fatima's creativity takes another step forward with her idea to transfer the weave textures and motifs into digital print on luxurious yet ethical fabrics.
