Rachael Levine is a textiles artist with a focus on Shibori and fabric dying. She has been a working artist since the Fall of 2014 and graduated with a BFA in Fashion Design from Columbia College Chicago. Rachael's love of clothing construction and manipulating textiles has blossomed into an art-to-wear collection called ARAE. The word ARAE comes from Rachael's nickname, Rae, and the word 'array' - an impressive display of things. Under her brand, she works with different kinds of silk, and cotton gauze to create her various styles of Kimonos, scarves, and tops. She also works with boiled wool, which she Shibori dyes then cuts and sews into soft accessories such as gloves, scarves, and hats. She uses ethical, sustainable practices with her dying method in the desert air, keeping it local with her small team of in-studio help to using patterns and methods that do not waste fabric and by recycling fabrics.
