My name is Adva Bruner I was born in Tel Aviv and I am a textile and fashion knits designer with a passion for color, texture & traditional craft. Since graduating from the prestigious SHENKAR COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING & DESIGN where I also teaches today, I've traveled the world learning from diverse cultures work methods I applies to my work process today. Collaboration with designers from other design fields can also be found amongst my projects.
Duende is an independent women’s apparel & accessories label by me, established in 2007. Traditional methods cleverly combining a modern twist and sophisticated knits are the signature of this label.
In Duende, I strive to deliver modern yet comfortable cuts suitable for any shape whilst putting a big emphasis on quality of the raw materials as well as the end result.
Methods I use are taken from different cultures around the world, including hand dying, knitting, printing, felting and many more. I continue to embrace new techniques, traditional and cutting edge, in order to deliver innovative and exciting designs.
I do my best to encourage fair employment conditions, not only for my team but also those who work with me.
Inspiration comes from travel and fascinating people as well as little things we all come across every day.
