[ iele ]
— Textile design with upcycled materials. Intricate unique layered collars that depict Romanian folkloric characters. Our long lost sorcery refrains are made up of four essential elements. We contribute to remembering and unearthing the long-forgotten mystical characters of our folklore and present them throughout layers and layers of softness and beads.
