Entry Description

My first range to the contribution of sustainable designs for my brand ‘CORAL by Seema’ using ‘peace silk’. The silk is locally hand dyed with natural dye materials from the environment such as flowers, seeds, roots and leaves. Silk is manipulated to create a volume using grid shirring method and stuffed bobbles, giving it a soft feminine feel and is teamed with Toray Ultrasuede made from 100% recycled polyester and hemp.


With my long affair with creativity I found my passion in being a women’s accessory designer. In 2004, I started my brand of handcrafted footwear and bags for women. Taking a sabbatical in 2018 to enrich my journey as a designer I pursued my Masters in Luxury Accessory Design and Brand Management, at Istituto Marangoni, Milan.

With a vision to make a positive impact on the planet earth, I am excited to relaunch 'Coral by Seema' as a sustainable brand of accessories.
