Hello, my self Shraddha, textile artist & designer in the field of Eco prints art form. My Eco printing journey began in 2016. Through these years, I’ve developed my own technique of Eco printing.
Formal courses from, across the globe, experts in this field helped me understand basics of Eco prints but the real challenge was after that i.e. to find which local foliage print well!
Then started the tiring & endless journey, of testing of leaves, trials, failures & frustrations. Finally each little step, at a time, lead me towards ‘crisp & fine’ natural beauties emerging into venture of “Leafage”_ it's… naturemade!!!!
Since then, my Studio is my second home where I spend most of my time exploring, creating & enjoying nature’s master pieces. In eco printing, there are no mistakes but just beautiful creations!
My journey before Leafage has been quite interesting too !
Being ‘Chartered Accountant’ (CA) by profession, I was thoroughly enjoying my successful corporate life.
Parallel through these years, I was nurturing my childhood creative instincts & love for nature. And the Day arrived where my ‘Creative passion’ took over ‘number crunching’.
Leaving behind, 14+ years of successful corporate life, I jumped into a ‘student hood’ again, to be a ‘Designer’. New journey began of Creative Learning, Designing, Internship & starting my own Label ‘Mohak Designer Studio’.
While on this creative journey, I came across the art form of ‘Eco Printing’& got magnetised towards it!
As a passionate Nature Lover, when I observe Nature's creativity around, I'm always in an ‘awe’ to see its wonderful colour combinations, shapes, textures & that too each one different & Unique!!!
This uniqueness and nature's magic made me its follower and since then been creating it's unique art pieces.
