About us

Driven to design, create & source, unique & handmade products for the home, Shakiraaz was created in 2011 by Melbourne based, Indian born, Textile/Graphic designer Shakira Lima.

Shakira’s Indian heritage, coupled with her love for all things “Bright & Beautiful”, “Rustic & Handmade”, her brand “Shakiraaz”, is a kaleidoscope of beautiful textiles & products , hand-woven, hand-printed or hand-painted, in warm earthy shades & spun into products that are completely unique & original.

Apart from creating her own designs, Shakira, also sources products directly from Indian artisans, at local fairs & markets in India, in turn helping the artisans sustain a livelihood & thus, showcasing their traditional techniques combined with a contemporary edge, to an international market.

With an aim to creating a sustainable brand, Shakiraaz, mainly uses eco-friendly dyes, natural & raw fabrics & hand-spun traditional techniques, that leave a less harmful stamp on the environment.
