hey, 

I'm Slávka!

  • Textile design student

  • Borås | Sweden

I'm an enthusiastic and creative being, always ready for new adventures. As a designer, I always take a very open and playful approach when creating something. I believe the journey IS the destination: when a creative process is enjoyable, it results in something enjoyable too, something one can stand behind and be proud of. I enjoy making things with my hands and I’m always up for a new fun project!

 

After my fashion design studies in Copenhagen, Denmark, and two design internships, I felt very empowered by all the knowledge but realised I didn't want to contribute to the polluting and unsustainable world of fast fashion, ever changing trends and throw-away culture. I was craving to get deeper understanding of textiles and wanted to become a part of the process that happens before a ready-made fabric lays on a table of a designer waiting to be made into a product.

 

At the moment I'm studying textile design at The Swedish School of Textiles in Borås, Sweden, where I work on many different projects within material and color theory, analog & digital pattern making, dyeing & printing, bioplastics, weaving, knitting and non woven materials, as well as exploring various forms and expressions of textiles, in both artistic and commercial way.

 

Besides dedicating my time to textile design I am also quite passionate about graphic and web design (including this site), art, design, drawing, photography, travelling, languages, yoga, nature, plants & animals.

Working with Slávka was a true pleasure and really easy! I was looking for someone to help me finalize 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.
