    Patterns, Dye and Fiber

    Karina Manarin is a fiber based studio focused on simple paired down silhouettes that serve as a modern canvas for traditional and experimental surface designs through dye and print.

    I draw inspiration from desert landscapes, natural patterns, art process, texture, ritual and cultural histories. I apply this aesthetic rooted in fiber, dye and craft to a range of products from home goods to jewelry.

    The hand dyed and designed textile prints are rooted in a playful sense of color, texture and experimentation. Pieces hand dyed with a modern sensibility, prints designed with a mix of photography, dye and illustration. My prints have developed over the years, starting with huge pattern hand screen printed art works I completed in college. Often finding myself more interested in the dye process I used as the base of my printed fabric, I started to play more with dyes and the fun unexpected results.

    Now my work consists exclusively of dyed goods with a few digitally printed hand made designs. These designs often contain dye imagery and lately Ive been playing around with over dyeing on top of these prints. I really feel like the possibilities are endless!

    I focus on earth conscious materials and process, no animal byproducts. I advocate slow fashion, investing in the pieces you wear.
