Meet 'RubyKite Arts & Scarves'
We’re now just two years old which means we’re incredibly excited about the possibilities for RubyKIte. Making our products as sustainable as possible is really important to us. We’re already minimising waste; printing in small batches and replacing our gift boxes with silk pouches made from off-cuts of our “Tree” design, as well as printing with dyes that are AZO free. And we’ve just launched a range of pouches and cushions printed on peace silk, which means “non-violent silk breeding and harvesting”. It allows the completion of the metamorphosis of the silkworm to the butterfly. We are also proud members of Design Nation, championing forward-thinking contemporary design.
Creating our brand has taken a lot of hard work. It’s required real dedication, a heap of integrity and most importantly a huge helping of creative belief fuelled by an imagination filled with ‘what if’s”. And although there are ups and downs, the one big upside for us is our 25-year friendship and the close family bonds that have grown since our children were little. Funnily enough, those “little” girls are the absolute stars of our RubyKite show, modelling our scarves so beautifully. It makes photo-shoots so much fun – a real family affair, where we get together, try on all the art scarves and take some pictures!
We are over the moon to win the Modern Maker’s Award for Fashion. What a privilege. It’s made us even more excited about our upcoming shows and exhibitions and has given us the confidence to start creating new designs which we hope to launch in September. Thank you!
