What do a whimsical imagination, a love for cats, traveling and the practice of wushu have in common? All wrapped into one, they are the qualities and interests of the scarf designer, Alena Karabanova.
“My main source of inspiration is traveling! Our planet is so incredible! In my journeys I’ve discoved new types of plants and animals which I want to paint immediately. The main topic of my patterns shows my love for the variety and richness of colors in nature. Still I have a personal muse—my cat. I do many sketches from it. Then I use them in creation of the patterns with tigers and leopards. That’s why my wild animals are like cute pets.”
