based in Borås, Sweden
I'm an enthusiastic and creative being, always ready for new adventures. As a designer, I always try to keep playful and curious approach when creating. In my work I very much enjoy making things with my hands and I’m always up for a new fun project!
My love for textiles started in my childhood. At first, watching my mom making handmade clothes for me and my sister, and later, getting my first sewing machine which allowed me to play with fabrics and alter my own clothes. After my fashion design studies in Copenhagen, Denmark, and two design internships, I felt empowered by all the knowledge but I still craved a deeper understanding of textiles and finding more practical solutions to underlying issues of the textile industry connected to sustainability.
At the moment I'm studying textile design at The Swedish School of Textiles in Borås, Sweden, where I work on many different projects: dyeing & printing, pattern making, weaving, knitting; as well as exploring colours, textures and textiles' possibilities in both artistic and commercial ways.
Besides dedicating my time to textile design I am also passionate about art, graphic & web design, travelling, learning languages, analog photography, feminism, yoga and plants.

Working with Slávka was a true pleasure and really easy! I was looking for someone to help me finalise some important projects and was really happy to find that Slávka approached the task at hand not only in a professional and speedy manner but also brought in her own creative contribution. Really happy how the project turned out and would always work with her again.

Slávka did my wonderful wedding dress. She was great at understanding my dream and putting it onto fabric. Together we chose the materials and most flattering shape. The whole process was magical, and each time we did a fitting it was like a warm hug. I ended up having an extremely happy wedding day with a unique dress made according to my needs. I can highly recommend her work as a high quality, thoughtful and fast process.
