A colourful weaver

  • • Krisztina specialises in dobby weaving
  • • She produces various home furnishing textiles
  • • Her biggest commission was for a hotel in Budapest

As a child, Krisztina Vándor became acquainted with weaving at the summer art camps she spent with her grandmother. Although she liked all forms of design and crafts, she was immediately enthralled by the meticulousness of different weaving techniques, so she went on to study weaving at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design. She works primarily with dobby weaving: she doesn’t weave pictures, but repeat patterns, which later take shape as blankets, rugs and pillows. She often works with other manufacturers that allows her to combine different professional skills. She considers it very important to work exclusively from natural raw materials and with the highest quality yarns. Her precision and maximalism results in unique, high-quality pieces that have become extremely popular in recent years – only six months after she launched her own business in 2019, she opened her first shop in Budapest.
