Eleni is a Brighton based print designer & illustrator.
In a society dominated by digital it has become easy to neglect the elegant and crafted touch of graphics that originate from one’s free-hand. Integrating the charm of fluid unexacting drawing and mark-making techniques using water-based pencils and inks to manipulate her designs with the advances of technology, Eleni Malami presented her debut collection of silk scarves at Première Classe in Paris in October 2016.
Since then she has been constantly evolving her designs as well as product range having introduced home accessories & silk Kimonos.
Printed and hand finished in England, Eleni’s creations aim to celebrate the organic medium of hand-crafted techniques whilst maintaining the standards of a high end premium product.
London-based for the past 11 years (and Brighton based for the last 3 months!) Eleni who is originally Greek, was destined for a life in academia but decided instead to follow in the creative footsteps of her families artistic sensibilities and completed a BA(HONS) Fashion degree at Central Saint Martins. Dreading the life trapped in a corporate office Eleni would not have been content unless she was covered in paints, yarns, fabrics and colour in her studio conversing with her plant pots!
