Aranya x Rahemur Rahman
Founded in 1990 Aranya is now a well established fair trade organisation and a member of WFTO. It is also one of the earliest members of the World Crafts Council from Bangladesh.
Rahemur Rahman reinterprets stories of South Asian identity and craftsmanship, actively decolonising heritage craft and artisanal textiles.
Aranya uses authentic natural dyes that are freshly prepared from ingredients such as Madder, Indigo, Cutch.
Rahman, as an emerging Bangladeshi, London-born designer, blends diasporic history and tradition with fantasy, playing with patterns and silhouette to create distinctive tailored pieces.
