ABOUT A ALICIA
Anna Alicia took a round-about route to accessory design, via a degree in Art History at the University of Kent and an MA in Fine Art at Central St Martins, London. Her background in Art History and Fine Art plays a huge role in inspiring her collections, as do the travels of her childhood, and the buzz of living and working in London. Alongside these influences, Anna Alicia also explores a fascination with historical craft and particularly Japanese craft and design.
Ethical and environmental concerns are central to her collections – all A Alicia accessories are made by hand in Anna Alicia’s London studio, using ceramic, organic cotton and recycled silver wherever possible. Far from finding it restrictive, Anna Alicia feels that working with limited materials inspires her to make the most of their possibilities.
Anna Alicia is also author of the craft/interiors how-to book 'Make it Your Own' and has contributed projects and articles to a number of other craft publications.
ETHICAL / ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT
A Alicia is commited to being an ethical, sustainable producer with minimal environmental impact. Wherever possible the materials used are ethically produced.
My current collection combines stoneware ceramic beads and shapes (handmade in my London studio) with organic cotton or silver findings made in the UK from recycled silver.
