What we do
We are Shevitza – an accessories brand based in Sofia, Bulgaria. Our products are based on authentic Bulgarian textile motifs. Our design mission is to strip all that is dusty and archaic from these motifs and reveal their essence – their strive for pure geometry, their rhythm, their neat and systematic stylisation of life.
Our work process always starts with research. We visit ethnographic museums, study old books and look through private textile collections
to gather the most distinct, idiosyncratic and peculiar figures from all over Bulgaria. Once we have the authentic motifs we digitalise them, reimagine and transform them. Once we’ve finished the designs we print, knit or weave the designs into contemporary accessories. And all we do comes with a single hope – that long forgotten local motifs will become part of contemporary. Because these motives were never meant to gather dust in books of museums. They were made to be worn. Every day.
