Woven from a world of wildlife and wonder.
Welcome to Arcana! I am Ria Mishaal, an artist, photographer and scientist. I create art to bring beauty and wellness through promoting a personal connection to nature.
My designs have species accurate details that tell real natural world stories, so you can recognise and reconfirm your bond.
I believe things in your home should be both beautiful and useful, and so I design to serve this aspiration. I hope you find something here that draws to nature.
We absolutely love our intertidal blanket. The colours are gorgeous and the blanket is beautifully designed. This will be well loved. Thank you.
The quality, creativity and attention to detail in Ria's work takes this from a simple throw to an art piece on my sofa just waiting - you know, all casual-like, pretending it doesn't know how beautiful it looks just lying there... - to be snuggled into. Worth every penny.
I discovered @fromarcana on instagram and instantly fell in love with Ria’s nature inspired designs. I received this beautiful Night Garden blanket from my best friends for my 40th birthday. The quality of the material, the colours and intricate patterns make it feel really special and it has quickly become a cherished possession. The woven cotton is soft, breathable, and comforting. I currently have my blanket draped over the end of my bed but it’s also perfect for a picnic or cozy evening indoors.
I absolutely love our new Sand blanket from the stunning Intertidal collection - I found it so hard to choose, but was ultimately seduced by the gorgeous royal blue of the reverse side. The quality of the fabric, the colours, and the details are so beautiful. The weight of it is lovely to snuggle up under. This blanket will be much loved and used at home and by the sea!
Beautiful nature design! So looking forward to using this outside in my garden over the summer - received lots of compliments on it from friends & family
The blanket arrived beautifully packaged in eco friendly paper, and is even lovelier than I imagined. The colours are gorgeous, and the flowers and butterflies are beautiful.There is so much to look at, and the blanket is a nice weight with a pretty fringe. It looks fabulous on the back of a chair in my studio and I shall use it often. I loved the interesting booklet about pollination which came with it too. What a nice touch. Thank you Ria!
I can't rate this gorgeous throw highly enough, it has actually exceeded my expectations. You simply can't appreciate the details, vibrant colours and weight of the item online. I'm absolutely delighted with it and would highly recommend this company too, as the service was first class.
I expected it to be lovely. It was so interesting as well!
What a lovely wrap, perfect size and beautifully woven. The booklet that comes with it is great. It has inspired me to think about what I can plant in my garden for the moths.
Found this beautiful brand online and fell in love completely. Ordered this blanket for my family first and it suits perfect all interiors with light tones. Straight after purchased the second one for myself. Look how amazing it looks in my living room now❣️
The blanket is a work of art and I love having something so beautiful in my home, where I can enjoy it every day.
We love our arcana blanket it’s the most favourite sitting room blanket in our home because it has a good and satisfying weight to it. It’s size is big enough for me and my toddler or for my 2 meter tall husband. I love the education catalogue which comes with it because it helps me answering all the why questions from my 3 year old who is now asking for the same blanket in her size. Brilliant quality, easy to clean and an eye catcher in our sitting room. So glad I bought this investment piece ♥️ Denise x
Arcana is everything I love in a brand: intentional, inspiring and incredibly beautiful. I love my Night Garden blanket and Little Magpie Moth cushion not just because it’s made with well considered materials and textures but because each piece is filled with Ria’s soul, her sensory artistic dreams and her love for nature and all it offers. There is a reason to own such pieces, it’s because a little of the maker’s heart carries with them and into your home.
Dreams do come true! I was given the beautiful Forest Flight blanket for our newly decorated bedroom yesterday and I am so thrilled with it. It lifts the whole room. Thank you for making such stunning pieces!
I’ve loved the versatility of our Night Garden blanket, snuggled up on the sofa now with it and yet used it as a beach throw just 2 weeks ago!! I got compliments on the beach on it!
