A love letter to women
I am so excited to bring you my latest collaboration with Artoosh supporting a cause very close to my heart. You can find out more about it here.
Made with sustainable organic bamboo and beechwood. Every purchase saves more water than standard cotton and sends underwear to women and girls in schools, hospitals and orphanages without access to daily underwear.
Written by Jas Bhachu, "A Love Letter To Women"
One of life’s greatest pains as a woman, is when a woman works against you.
One of life’s greatest acts of love as a woman, is when a woman understands you.
Sisterhood offers a safe house and a sweet embrace when the world as a woman is filled with so many storms.
Sisterhood is collective power, healing and growth that can only take place in unity.
Sisterhood is Artoosh, actively equipping women with what they need and deserve to push forward in life.
This is my Love Letter to Women, whether I know you or not, I promise to honour you and uplift you always.
13 Ways of looking
Thoroughly enjoyed the new exhibition at The Herbert Art Gallery '13 Ways of Looking'. A diverse range of work ranging from photography, mix media, installations, paintings and much more. I would definitely recommend checking it out if you are in the Midlands - excellent social distancing procedures in place too!

TALKING Textiles live!
Thank you @amwa_designs
for inviting me to talk live with you!
‘Ghana to India: The Selvedge of Two Textile Cultures’
Join @jas_bhachu and myself for a conversation, which will explore the spiritual, symbolic, ornate and rich textile cultures of our two heritages.
We did an MA in Textile Design together and she carries a wealth of knowledge about cotton and its fascinating socio-political and economic history.
I’m so so excited for Jas to be joining me; she’s an incredible illustrator and an equally brilliant digital designer. She’s worked with brands such as John Lewis, Toyota, Hyundai, Pirelli, Aston Martin, and AMWA Designs.
Together we’ll explore the commonalities and differences between Ghana and India’s textile cultures - and the conflicted truths. We’ll address the implications of cheap Chinese counterfeits, fast fashion and the second hand clothing industry and their impacts on the environment.
It’s going to COLOURFUL.

Asian Woman Festival Exhibition!
This was a day I will remember forever. With over 1000 visitors and challenging stigmas within the Asian community, it was so special to see women come together and create such a powerful movement.
Asian Woman Festival
So happy to be coming together with my asian sisters from across the country to make history!
I’m exhibiting at the UK’s first ever @asianwomanfestival on 30 March in Birmingham. Join me for a day jam packed full of conversation, art and culture with likeminded people celebrating Asian women.
Tickets are only £10 for the full day
three50 prints have arrived!
This has been a request from several people for a while now, so I thought what better time to release a series of limited addition prints than near the festive period?

I Am a woman and this is my legacy
It was a pleasure to be selected amongst a group of fantastic female artists for the the I am a woman and this is my legacy exhibition.
Laura I. Gallery is pleased to announce a major group exhibition of contemporary women artists. Featuring works in a diverse range of mediums, styles and genres, the exhibition represents a cross-section of the work produced by women today. Laura I. Art Gallery brings together 40 artists to display artwork in our new exhibition “I am a woman and this is my legacy”.
This exhibition is raising awareness of women who are making a difference to society and celebrating their brilliance to ensure there are more role models for girls and women.
2018 marks 100 years since some women were granted the right to vote. Among other places in the UK, Barking and Dagenham was one of the places who is celebrating women’s role in the suffrage movement and mark the progress that’s been made by women over the past 100 years. As part of the community we want to support and honour this milestone, through an exhibition that highlights stories and personalities from women not from the past but from women of the present who are making an active contribution to the development of our culture.
I look forward to sharing some of the stuff I get up to :-)
