“Raina Atelier” was originally founded by artist and graphic designer Raina Gulija Lilliard in 2003 and products were sold at Art and Craft Fairs and markets in UK. However, the business changed direction and Raina then ran family bespoke tailoring and high fashion business in London for many years.
After the first lockdown in 2020 and due to the ongoing world pandemic, Raina turned back to her art and the brand sprung back to life.
Combining her love of graphic art and printing techniques with extensive experience and knowledge of tailoring, Raina creates hand made accessories, homeware and gifts that feature hand printed original linocut designs and fabric patterns using eco friendly inks on natural 100% fabrics. The fabrics are hand printed from her own hand drawn original linocut block designs, inspired by the beauty of our natural world and its majestic, magical flora and fauna. These blocks are carved by hand and printed by rolling the block with ink and pressing it face down on to fabrics.
With sustainability in mind all products are made locally, so they don’t travel long distance and are produced as ethicality and as environmentally friendly as possible.
Raina studied painting at the School of Applied Arts and Design and graphic art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, Croatia. She also received formal training in tailoring and successfully completed Apprenticeship in Tailoring specialising in men’s tailoring in London, UK.
Apart from owning her own brand, Raina also collaborates with theatre and production companies as a Freelance Theatre Costume Designer/Maker.
