Original artwork by Arabella June by Banniere
Arabella is a designer, illustrator and full-time dreamer living in the vibrant and beautiful country South Africa. She started her creative journey as a child growing up in the Karoo, a small farming town outside Cape Town. Surrounded by the wide-open spaces, she drew inspiration from the natural wildlife and botanical patterns. South Africa is truly a cultural melting pot and Arabella wanted to bring this out in her South African design. The artist captures the wonderful diversity of plant species found in the Cape Floral Kingdom, as well as the African wildlife that has been preserved to keep the identity and history of South Africa.

I decided to start Banniere after traveling the world and falling in love with the unique and varying styles and cultures in different towns and cities. I had a background working in Fashion for other companies such as Stubbs and Wootton and wanted to start something on my own that combined my love of travel, art and fashion. Through Banniere, I was able to work with these local artists and come up with designs that emanate these different cultures and turn them into wearable art: a silk scarf.
Banniere works with local artists in cities around the world on designs for silk scarves. Each scarf is specially crafted and packaged with a story about the artist’s connection to the city, art background and inspiration behind the design.
