Rawan Maki is an Environmental Engineer and Fashion Designer. Originally from Bahrain, Rawan Maki believes that beauty can only be accomplished alongside sustainability and justice. These themes carry forward in the aesthetic of the brand, where her designs are inspired by the interaction of the natural and the man-made. For instance – the shoreline and how it is continuously extended to make more land.
Rawan Maki’s debut collection in 2017 is an ode to the land and sea that emerge in the aftermath of land reclamation – as well as the dialogue we have with receding shorelines, shrinking forests, recycling signs, and all the invisible hands and energy that goes into creating final products.
Rawan Maki combines her environmental engineering and design background to create each piece as a “system”, both aesthetically and in terms of design elements- where she designs to minimize waste and uses fabrics with recycled and organic components.
RAWAN MAKI COLLECTION
All the pieces in Rawan Maki’s collection are limited edition, and produced for sale only once. Once the initial stock of the limited edition pieces is sold out, they will not be re-made.
Rawan Maki uses fabrics that are either GOTS certified, farmed organically, made with low impact dyes, and consume low amounts of energy during their production process. Some of the materials have recycled elements (such as recycled polyester). During the production process, the reduction of waste is made a priority by using all components of sourced fabrics.
Each look has its unique sustainability story.
Rawan Maki urges buyers to care for garments through handwashing and natural drying (line or flat) to give them a long and bright life.
Collections ship worldwide via courier delivery, from two dispatch locations – London and Bahrain.
