“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 went to Stuttgart, Germany to be closer to her family and whilst being stuck there in consecutive lockdowns and not being able to travel back to UK, she 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 and gifts that feature hand printed original linocut designs and fabric patterns using eco friendly inks on natural 100% cotton fabrics. The fabrics are hand printed from her own hand drawn original linocut block designs, that are carved by hand and printed by rolling the block with ink and pressing it face down on to beautiful premium fabrics.
With sustainability in mind all products are made locally, in London for UK territory and in Stuttgart for German territory, 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 now resides between London and Stuttgart.
Her artwork and designs are inspired by the beauty of our incredible nature.
