ÖRÖKSÉG Alkotóműhely

Katrics Krisztina

The Örökség Alkotóműhely (The Heritage Workshops) has been established to manufacture modern tailored clothes – made from natural, extremely highquality textiles – whereby the real beauty is expressed by hand made and professional machine embroidery originating in the ancient Hungarian ornamentation. Their motifs are taken and recreated from relics, coming from the time when Hungarians first settled in the area, during the 9th century, as well as 17-18th century men’s ornamented coats. The final enchantment and atmosphere are completed by the appliqués made exclusively by hand. Each blouse, waistcoat and coat reveal the power, knowledge and skill of the seamstress, who carefully recreates these ages´ old designs thread by thread. These costumes give pride to the one who wears them, and inspire those who take a good look at them. These clothes demand that their wearer stand tall with dignity and honour.
