Have question?


This is me, Aleksandra Bartus-Winiarska,
Aleks Designs is my brand. I celebrate, in felt, beautiful designs, colours and textures. This is my creative passion as a designer and maker (Aleksandra Bartus-Winiarska). I create stylish, timeless and quality nuno felt fashion accessories using only the highest quality materials, such as australian merino wool, silk and natural fibers. My contemporary collections are distinguished by their rich mixture of colours and materials resulting in luxurious textured finishes in my nuno felted throws, nuno felted clothes and nuno felted scarves. Based in my West Cork home, I am inspired by natural landscapes and abstract paintings; this is reflected in my home and fashion collections. With a Masters of Art, specializing in ceramic design, working with clay has widened my horizons and perceptions when looking at finishes, textures and colours.
I graduated from the Department of Ceramics and Glass at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw. For many years, my passion was ceramics. The variety of textures and color manipulation creates enormous opportunities. Seeking other forms of expression fabric interested me. Along these lines, I came into contact with a nice, fleshy australian merino wool, who delighted me with its delicacy. It is very plastic material that can "sculpt" indefinitely. We decide the point at which interrupt or end felting, depending on the desired effect. Variety of textures - draped, rough, smooth ...this is similarly like clay. But the warmth and coziness that comes from the wool is the exact opposite of cold clay. And these two opposites attracted me. Enchanted by its beauty. Ceramics and wool is that of which I love to create. It is my personal means of expression, an expression of what my soul game.

I am looking for inspiration, I discover, I create...
