ARAE is an artistic fashion brand that uses clothing and soft accessories as a canvas to portray different patterns using Shibori - a Japanese tie-dye technique.
Coming from a long line of artists and entrepreneurs ARAE was the result of Rachael's love of textiles and fashion. Since being introduced to a sewing machine at a young age, fabric was the medium of choice to express herself. Using natural color stories and inspiration from patterns found in nature, it's easy to see how Rachael uses Shibori and fashion design to replicate these influences.
Our hope is that with each garment, we help our customers to express their inner artist and love of all creative processes to cherish their piece forever.
Proudly made and hand dyed in Colorado by the designer herself. The silk collection is complete with french seams to last a lifetime.
