An array is defined as an impressive display or range of a particular type of thing, which is exactly what Rachael Levine honors in her brand of wearable art. Derived from array and Rachael's childhood nickname, Rae, Arae offers one-of-a-kind apparel and accessories hand-dyed on silk and and boiled wool using Shibori, an ancient Japanese tie-dye technique that creates imperfectly beautiful patterns that allow customers to express their own creative styles with every wear.
Descending from a long line of artists and entrepreneurs, Rachael proudly draws inspiration from patterns, textures, and colors found in nature as well as elements of different cultures to which she has traveled, like old stained glass windows and Islamic tiling, to name a couple. Rachael's canvas has been fabric ever since she was introduced to a sewing machine at a young age and she hopes that every customer will love wearing their unique garments as much as she loves designing and constructing them.
Arae supports the Sakura Foundation, which celebrates Japanese-American heritage, culture, and community in the heart of downtown Denver.
