Hello everyone,
glad to see you around!
I am a professional designer, textile artist and feltmaker with a background in artistry. I'm delighted to have an opportunity to run my very own cozy online boutique here on Etsy. What I'm mostly focused on is wool -- working with freshly cut fleeces and other organic undyed and dyed materials, like wild Indian silk which has an amazing colour of matte gold. I'm fascinated with wool's pliability, roughness, natural goodness and warmth, with it's plain purity. That is why many items you see in my shop have natural colours and textures. As an artistry person, I'm inspired by splashes of colours, and tend to make something crazy colourful from time to time -- you see, I can't help falling for another roving of juicy orange, red or purple... :-)

Nowadays, when the shops have been flooded with mass production, handmade goods have become an ideal way to highlight one's individuality. With handmade one-of-a-kind clothes or accessories, you can truly stand out of the crowd, and have a thing no one else in the world has. What is more, you're buying from a devoted craftsperson instead of lining the pockets of big companies which most likely use sweatshops in developing countries.

Many thanks and smiles to people who kindly represented my work in their blogs or magazines:
