Valentina Avramides

Sydney artist and fashion designer, Valentina Avramides has created a unique collection of luxury silk scarves, designed and produced in Australia. Valentina’s original paintings employ mixed media, including Japanese ink brush, water colour, pen and collage on parchment. The artworks are lovingly transposed onto silk. The silk is then digitally printed and the scarves masterfully hand finished. Valentina’s artworks are inspired by life and its great gifts: dance, rap, poetry, contemporary art, fashion and glamour.

Sustainability is of vital importance to the Valentina Avramides brand and is carefully woven into the process, production and packaging. The water-based inks used are non-toxic and recycled, with no harsh chemicals or dyes used.
