This work, which combines the business world of high fashion with socially and economically vulnerable categories of women in our country, fulfils and inspires me. We create outstanding products for domestic and foreign markets, and at the same time we maintain the tradition of making handmade products. Additionally, this creative and dynamic environment provides additional value to my work and what I do.

I chose knitting because it allows me more creativity and imagination and only those who work in handicraft know how much it demands – first of all love, patience, skill, how much you give something invisible to each thread, and these tiny threads are thousands and thousands to make something nice, quality, usable. Udružene gather women who, through their work and effort, preserve this noble skill from oblivion.
