Aithne: Vibrations of Carmine – Review

If like me you love something that is unique and you won't see every other person wearing as you head down the high street, then Aithne Art on a Scarf, maybe a company you are going to want to know about. Headed up by Lia, this is a family business with her Uncle Ararat.

Who are Aithne?




I guess we should start at the beginning, Lia had travelled to her uncle's studio in, Languedoc-Roussillon, Southern France. There as she wandered around looking at his beautiful paintings (you can find his paintings here online: Petrossian's Art Gallery and can also read the story of his Artist’s Journey). As she moved between the paintings, they drew her in, taking her to another world. After all they are stunning. Her imagination took over as she imagined herself wrapped in this beautiful otherworldly paintings, printed onto the finest silk and available to all.

Lia put this idea to her uncle and to her surprise his reply was simple “Why don’t you try it?”.

The idea was left for a while, Ararat had to work more on his Vibrations of the Universe, which needed to be made ready for public viewing. As the paintings neared completion they decided the time had come and begun to ordering samples and just in time for the launch of Ararat collection the first samples arrived with Lia, a vivid, beautiful array of colours. It was with trepidation she flew back to face to meet with Ararat, show him the first scarves and of course see Vibrations of the Universe in its full glory.

What do Aithne offer now?

Based in the UK, Aithne ship there beautiful 100% natural silk scarves all over the world, with some of them made to order.

At the moment there are two collections based on Ararat's art, as previously mentioned Vibrations of the Universe and The Oneiric World.

Vibrations of the Universe – Vibrations of Carmine

Lia so very kindly sent me Vibrations of Carmine from the Vibrations of the Universe collection, this is apparently one of the most loved designs in their collection and I can most definitely see why. The scarf arrived boxed and wrapped in tissue paper, which when unwrapped revealed a beautiful soft silk scarf which is just bursting with colour.

Vibrations of Carmine uses a host of different shades of blues, purples, reds and yellow, which once wrapped around your neck feels so luxurious.

Personally, I think these scarves offer such a wonderfully rich quality of product, which is going to make for a beautiful gift for yourself or a friend and definitely is going to be something you don't see many others wearing.

Aithne offers a range of sizings in scarves, with a mix of square and rectangular designs, with prices ranging between £40 and £240 and right now you can get 20% off their online store by using the code: VALENTINE at checkout, right on up until the 14th February.

What do you think of the idea between Aithne and of course the Vibrations of Carmine scarf?

    That scarf has such vivid colors! It’s it neat how a scarf can really change the way a top or outfit looks with such little effort.

    Love how colorful that scarf is. I think nowadays people try to tone down color if so what is cool when I see something like this and it pops.

    Wearable art is a great concept. An artist friend of mine is doing the same, and her products are generally some kind of throw. She just branched into journals, which I am really excited about!
