Rachael Levine started ARAE in August 2014. With a new take on an ancient tie-dye technique, she features Shibori on boiled wool for Fall/Winter and on cotton and silk for Spring/Summer.
Graduating with a BFA in Fashion Design from Columbia College Chicago, Rachael took her knowledge in construction and combined it with her love of Shibori to move forward with ARAE.
Considering all the variables in the hand dying process, the brand does small batch production and takes pride in the fact that no two items will ever be the same. Rachael takes inspiration from nature and her surroundings living in Denver, CO.
Patterns, colors, and textures found in nature are replicated in the collections with Shibori. ARAE is for the creative people who enjoy the outdoors!
