About

The only design that is acceptable in the time that we live in is sustainable design.

Sewing and embroidering, threads and sewing needles were present in my life since ever. As I was growing up with my grandmothers, one of them was a professional seamstress and the other one was self-thought knitter and embroiderer I could not resist the magic of the colors and patterns of the textiles they were using. I've learned to knit when I was 8 years old, but I didn't stick to it long. When I was 12 years old, I made my first bag from an old pair of jeans. It was completely sewed by hand, and it was with embroidered hearts and flowers on it. I never stopped since then. I studied architecture, and I love it, but my interest in hand crafting and my wish for a better world combined were much stronger than my interest in architecture and work on a computer.
I came up with the idea of finding and choosing vintage materials and unusable clothing and making them part of something new, usable, and maybe even decorative. So from the things ready to become garbage and pollute the world I decided to make something decorative to make the living space unique, warm and more individual. I came up with the idea of making pillows. I found inspiration in the everyday life, in the lyrics of beautiful songs, in love. I made a drawing based on the daily inspiration, I added quotes from my memoirs or song lyrics, and later I embroidered them or I made textile collage.
I continued with making pouches, wall hangings, dolls, stuffed animals and toys too, but lately what I love doing the most is hand embroidery on clothing. I collaborate with (local) sustainable brands and designers and hand embroider ready made clothing by them.
Every piece that I make is unique and made once, I don't enjoy making the same design twice. In fact that is what I mostly love about handmade items, you can never get the same product more than once. You can use the same drawings and patterns, but the final product will always be unique. Enjoy!
