When and how did you actually start?
I started designing fashionable handbags and scarves in 2007. My husband and I sewed them on an old treadle lent to us by our best men, but we could only sew with one type of stitch. Eventually, in 2015, I decided to start designing homeware.
What are your sources of inspiration?
My source of inspiration is all things traditionally Slovenian that evoke memories of the good old times. Be it a hen that used to graze in almost every grandmother’s backyard, peonies that adorned village houses, potica – the queen of Slovenian festive dishes – or herbs and flowers found in the meadows.
Could your craft be considered in danger?
I don't think so. Screen printing is a really old craft, but it is still widely used. Almost every printed T-shirt is made with this technique. It is true that more technologically advanced techniques are available today, but the basis
of screen printing remains.
What is less known about your work?
In general, people are always really interested in seeing how I put a frame with a net on the fabric and then add the paint. This is why they love coming to my workshop and watching me work.
