From the University to the Market place meeting one customer at a time

I, Vanya Kovacheva at age 23 graduated with Master degree as a textile engineer from the Technical University of Sofia, Bulgaria, Europe. I have been trained into the art of pattern making, mass production manufacturing of clothing,and running the financial part of a business. I have always highly enjoyed my profession as a designer and love the creative process of making new clothing pieces. I have great imagination and endless ideas for new designs.
I had a workshop with 4 seamstresses in Bulgaria and lines for sleepwear and sportswear. My family moved to USA 2001. It took me a while to assess the new culture, find marketplace and pick an inspiring product line. I love lace and weddings, so a veil line became my new dream. I have picked up the best beaded lace and created many different styles veils. I made my own patterns and the journey of taking photos of my items began. There is still much to be done to have beautiful photos in my shop, but I am working on it.
I love weddings and brides! It is such a satisfaction to be part of this special moment in a woman's life - her wedding! Helping each of my customers to pick the right style and color for her dress brings me joy! I pay attention personally to the customs requests brides have.
In my creative process I make my own patterns and make the first several items, so I can improve the patterns. I make at least ten items, so I can be able to explain to my seamstress all the details needed for her to know how to assemble particular style veil. I communicate with my clients and I make all custom orders. Jennifer pre-makes all my best selling veils, so I am able to ship them same day.
What lays in the future? I am planning to pick up again on my old passion: sleepwear and refresh it with new ideas and new fabrics. Expect my NEW SLEEP WEAR LINE for BRIDES.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I accept returns done before the date of the wedding. IF you are not sure what style you need, let me know the date of the wedding and if you want to exchange, or return. Veils are art to me. Once you fall in love with one you don't want to try something else. I can send you swatches for free from the netting fabric and the edge lace so you can check if they match your dress. You can send me your address and request a swatch. I want to answer all your questions before buying so when you order the veil you can be sure what you are getting. You can request closer photos of the lace. I can make custom veil for you with length and width that you specify from the style you like. Let me know about your dream veil and I will give you a price. Mix and match any veil with any lace from my shop.
I accept payments through Credit Cards and PayPal. They give me 30 days chance for refund if I need to cancel the transaction.
