Sara Sulemanji began her career in design after graduating from The University of the Creative Arts with a first class honours degree in printed textiles. Much of her earlier work was based around her in depth knowledge of dyes and screen printing, hand dyeing and mixing colours to create a unique collection of scarves and ties. Her work has evolved spending time creating observational drawings and patterns, inspired by museum visits, organic forms, colour and nature.
Shakila Sulemanji worked as a graphic designer for many years before producing a collection of hand block printed cushions for John Lewis in the 90s. There has always been a fascination with traditional methods and craft with a particular interest in various forms of printmaking such as lino printing and etching. Recent work includes pieces inspired by Persian poetry, decorative textiles and jewellery from the Indian subcontinent and Africa.
