Statement Pieces

Gardens Of Memory

The main inspirations were the atmosphere of my dye garden and outdoor studio, my antique treasures collected throughout the years, among which there are old broken ceramics, tiles recalling old times and memories.
There are several stories hidden in everyone’s memory, telling about simple feelings, voices, fragrances or faces. There are several strange, small, old, broken… objects in every person’s life, that are telling stories. About the person’s whole world, about a period of her life, about spaces, time, cultures and human connections… These are the base of my jewellery collection, also dyed with plants, mainly from my own dye garden.

Editorial For The Pump Magazin

Ditta Garden series vol.1.

This capsula collection is composed of handfelted outer garments, blouses and a kimono, made of various textiles, mainly pure silk and cotton. Each piece dyed with plants, using eco print technique. The pieces look different because of the variant dyeing process and several plants, and still harmonised. The forms are basic, emphasizing the rich textiles.

Ez a kapszula kollekció kézi nemezeléssel készült felsőruházatból, blúzokból, kimonóból tevődik össze, az alapanyagok a nemez mellett nagyrészt selyem, és pamut.
Mindegyik darab növényekkel van festve, eco print technikával mintázva. A különféle festési eljárások alkalmazása miatt eltérőek a darabok, mégis harmonizálnak. A forma puritánsága a textilek gazdagságát igyekszik kiemelni.

The collections place the principle of sustainability into the center of focus and follow personal intuitions. Pieces are largely focused on textiles.

Eco printed poetry. Rust printed means the pattern made by using rusted fabrics. Colours are realized through traditional natural dye methods. Mark making with rust doesn’t need synthetic dyestuff.
Red is the colour of life and death. One of the first paint in the history of mankind. Before 40 000 year people found and used iron oxide for painting (body, clothes, pottery). Telkibánya -’Veresvizi’ patak – the oxidation of Iron sulphite meeting the water creates iron oxide, which covers, colours the environment- stones, leaves. These objects makes rust imprints to the sorroundings.
It’s about the marks of fragility which I adapt to textiles. I create poethical but modern collections through hand crafted fabrics. It’s focusing what I want the brand to be, environmentally conscious collections.
Naturally dyed textiles, dyeing with plants.
Hand felting
The fabrics have been reinvented from the textile tradition creating a sophisticated women’s clothing line that combines the luxury of textiles and materials with innovative ideas and creative solutions.
The forms are simple, comfortable, loose-fitting with wide surfaces.

The sets present the ancient textile techniques and bring to the modern world of fashion as one of a kind pieces of art.
