A collection of Scarves and Shawls bridging the gap between ART and FASHION.
WHERE ART MEETS FASHION
MIA KORA (100 Gold Coins) is a collection of scarves and shawls that is centered around the concept of WEARABLE ART.
Originally inspired solely by Priya's artwork, we now have a growing portfolio of talented Artists whose diverse work keeps our collections unique, creating on-trend collections every season.
Priya graduated with a degree in Textiles but started off her career working in a Bronze foundry where she got to experience both 2D and 3D art. She started painting full time and worked as a freelance artist for about 12 years before going back full circle and heading back to her first love... fabric!
PAINTING A NEW TREND
Putting her artwork onto beautiful fabrics and being able wear it became an addiction. Her paintings adorn Scarves, Shawls and more recently Sarees which have become quite popular. "Its 6 meters of luxury wrapped around you... one of the sexiest pieces of clothing!"
Not one to work within boundaries and limitations, Mia Kora has now branched out to being a full scale fabric production house offering digital printing on a variety of fabrics for the Fashion, Art and Interior industries. We are able to offer a wide range of fabrics from synthetic to natural fibres to suite all kinds of creative ventures.
"I felt restricted with paintings being hung up, with this concept I could bring them more to life by being able to wear my work and wrap myself in my own comfort bubble." Priya.
MIA KORA salutes artists whose talents reach out much further than the frame they are put in.
MIA KORA CONSERVATION
Born and brought up in Kenya where the wildlife, flora and fauna has become a part of her being. It comes naturally to become protective of our ecosystem which is why Mia Kora has introduced a charity collection where between 40% - 100% of the profits go towards selected organisations. Currently we are working with the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (UK), Ol Pejeta Conservancy (Kenya), Helping Rhinos (UK) as well as the Amboseli Trust for Elephants (Kenya) which has become one of our favourite wildlife conservation projects.
