Hi, it’s Anika from Variety Silk House here, and I have to confess… I love Disney. So when I found out that our fabrics were going to be used in the newest Disney movie Aladdin, I freaked out. It is a dream come true. I have been (not so patiently) waiting for the past 2 years for the movie to come out. Knowing that within the magical world Disney has created, our silks are woven into the story is more than I could have ever asked for.
The movie looks like a beautiful dive into the world of Aladdin. With a big whirl of colours and inspiration from traditional costumes. We particularly can’t wait to see how they interpret and re-invent the iconic costumes from the 1990’s cartoon.
Enjoy the movie and be inspired by the colourful and beautiful world of Agrabah that Disney has created.
Disney describes Aladdin as...
