BEHIND THE BRAND
Ruby Kite is an independent London based brand, founded by designer and printmaker Tamara Williams and textile curator Joy Leese, creating contemporary art that is used in making their limited edition silk scarves and accessories.
Having spent over 30 years creating and designing for brands worldwide, they thought it was time to turn their truly individual artworks into unique statement pieces. Ideas always start with drawing, from a love of composition and visual space through to the energy and freedom of abstract line work. Tamara explores textures created by different printmaking techniques, working with gypsum as a print medium, which creates intricate textures that become hugely abstracted when taken large over their silk and cashmere modal fabrics.
Each colour story is printed in small batches, using natural materials and packaged in more sustainable silk pouches, by hand.
Ruby kite is always original with limited editions that stand-out as truly original in a world of mass production.
