Domi meaning “to sleep” in Creole Haitian, is a small but quickly growing off shoot of designer Ali Blankley’s high end label, Hazel Brown. Born and raised in Canada, she has lived and worked on both US coasts but has recently settled into the community of Buffalo NY where she creates in a spacious studio drenched in natural sunlight.
Ali’s Domi evolution was inspired by a trip through the state of Gujarat in India. It was here she fell in love with the simple organic fabrics woven by local village artisans. Since it’s beginning in 2013 the brand has evolved organically and now includes hand spun and woven blankets, organic bedding and prints based on delicate victorian patterns. With an emphasis on keeping it simple, she is excited to be soon offering a small collection of pared down “day wear”.
“ We seek to emphasize the poetry in ordinary existence , so raw or refined, beauty is what we search for.” It’s in this philosophy that guides each and every piece in the Domi collection.
