– We see in your designs mixes of different techniques.

– Yes, we are experimenting a lot now. And we see that this is the trend worldwide. For example we made a line of designs in velvets using mat and shiny fibers. We add to one design combinative structures and finally make prints to get the interesting play of colors. 
In other designs we used several colors of yarns to get various effects.
