With an unsatiable passion for beautiful products for the home, combined with her love for painting and sketching, Shakiraaz was created by Melbourne based, Indian born textile and graphic designer, Shakira Lima.

Starting with handpainting detailed botanicals as cushions a few years ago and with a love for all things natural, handmade and handcrafted, Shakiraaz now includes beautiful textiles and products, designed by Shakira in her Melbourne studio or sourced directly from artisans, in turn helping them sustain a livelihood.


With a colourful range including handscreen printed or hand painted cushions, hand stitched vintage kantha bedlinen, handpainted throws and handwoven jute baskets, each piece on Shakiraaz is quite unique and nothing is mass produced, with each product having a low impact on the environment.
