WHAT IS KOLOVRAT?
“I want to bring inspiration to the ones that experience my work.”
Kolovrat is a brand that seeks to be an expression of the cultural vibe of a hectic society. Our creation process is like a ritual where we tune ourselves with the energy of the times. It’s an undressing of preconceptions that require a personal involvement with each piece of clothing that is being created. This is why our “atelier” is a living organism, always changing and always in constant movement.
To be part of a culture is to be socially responsible for the impact that is created by us. As a local brand, we seek to be conscientious of the real impact created in our surroundings and in everyone we somehow touch.
Kolovrat was established in 1990 and since then that it is rooted in the savoir faire of tailor made clothes. We like to dedicate special attention to the singularity of each of our clients, in a specific and prolonged way.
Materials are very important for us. With natural materials as a starting point, we like to explore new shapes, new methods and new possibilities that bring to our clothes a bit of boldness and a refined sense of humor.
We like to create unique and surprising garments. To dress a Kolovrat garment is to be in touch with the true self, we wish to transform it into an act of self-empowerment.
Now that you know us, let us know you, get involved!
