These hand-felted wool mittens were made by young Georgian designer-maker Liliana Maisuradze. A graduated of the Academy of Arts, Liliana returned back to her birth town Oni, in Racha – in the mountainous region of Georgia - and established the felt workshop “Edena” to teach felt crafts and empower local women. Liliana’s works combine traditional ornaments, motives and forms and, with her artistic vision, turns them into modern garments and accessories. The gloves were made for EthnoDesign (more on them below), with whom we also worked to build this collection.
