Ilona was born and lives in Lithuania – a beautiful green country near the Baltic Sea and loves making anything from felted slippers to handwoven scarves!
After graduating from Kaunas University of Technology (Sewing Design and Technology speciality), Ilona started searching for something that she was fond of in the craft world as she always loved handmade gifts.
Ilona prefers all natural materials, such as linen, silk and various types of wool. She fell in love with felting in 2008 and after a few years, she discovered spinning and weaving.
''I do love to play with colours, materials, to combine different techniques. I find my inspiration in many places and spaces: in nature, music, art and in daily life routine. Fibres makes me happy, no matter what technique I am using.''
