Karina Manarin is “an artist, textile connoisseur, illustrator and pattern enthusiast.” With a BFA in fibers, Karina offers gorgeous and earthy hand dyed accessories and apparel. Some of her pieces use a traditional Japanese technique called Shibori while others stem from Karina’s illustrations or photographic visuals of her travels.
I can totally see her love for patterns, geology and vintage art books throughout her work. Karina experiments with various paints, pigments, dyes and other materials and the final products are definitely beautiful culminations of her experimentation. I can’t help but catch a little tinge of wanderlust when I flip through her lookbook, read her blog and browse her shop and I hope you find each piece just as intriguing as I do.
Giveaway: Paired perfectly with chunky earrings and any outfit, Karina is offering this gorgeous hand dyed graphic scarf to one lucky reader here on The Lovely Dept!
