Aleksandra Richert Studio, since 2012, has been exploring fabrics. The projects are connected with the closest surroundings of people. The designer’s assumption is to disenchant a notion of artistic fabric, taking it closer to users – also to the youngest ones – in the form of modern objects with practical functions. Textiles dedicated to children are toys which develop imagination, in juicy colours, sculptural cushions like cuddly toys, inspiring mats and rugs. They are rakish, multi-sensory, interactive. They inspire with a shape, colour and form. They encourage to touching, stroking, plucking, scratching, exploring on each side. They are all made in author’s techniques, mostly hand-made what makes them unique.
