Angelika Gontschar: delicate materials with embroidery
The newcomer combines fabric design with Feng Shui
“I always wanted to work with fabrics and design”, says Angelika Gontschar. In 2005 the qualified dressmaker trained as a Feng Shui consultant, taking her diploma in Malaysia at the Yap Cheng Hai Academy. Then for many years she successfully developed and realised concepts of interior design – not least in her own guesthouse in Brandenburg.
Her talent for drawing creations for fine-quality fabrics was something she discovered in 2015. Since then she has devoted herself, heart and soul, to her talent for design and built up a high-quality network with weaving mills and embroidery firms in North Italy. She will be showcasing her first decorative fabrics at the coming Heimtextil 2019: reinforced textiles of linen, cotton or wool – for wall hangings, over-curtains or upholstery fabrics.
“Embroidery can lend delicate fabrics the final, unique polish. Individual elements, even really small ones, can be emphasised by embroidery in order to make a spellbinding impression on us. Our embroidery firm is located near Milan and we shall certainly keep our production in Europe”, says Angelika Gontschar. She will be presenting her fabrics and designs to the public at Heimtextil 2019 in Hall 8, Stand A86 – entirely in accordance with her life’s motto: Live your full potential. Be the best version of yourself.
