...dreaming of a better world??!... I am...
One where artisans are supported. One where artistry and slow design is appreciated. Where small businesses get the attention and support they deserve. Where textiles traditions are treasured and people from different cultures live together with understanding, without prejudice and without the idea that there should be a hierarchy of identities. Yes, it's a dream...
WHAT I BELIVE IN:
THE ONLY WAY TO BE CREATIVE IS TO HAVE AN OPEN MIND
Creativity is at the heart of our humanity, art and artful expressions are an even more essential part of our existence than ever
FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, CREATIVE VOICES, CELEBRATING INDIVIDUALITY AND COMMON HUMANITY WITH THREADS THAT CONNECT US
To discover our collective creative voice through threads and textiles, to give one's life COLOR, TEXTURE, DEPTH, VALUE AND JOY - and hopefully share it! To support crafts and artisans, to meander in art/crafts and design. To respect the wisdom of the past.
Wondering about me?
I grew up in picturesque Budapest, lived in London for most of my adult life for over two decades and currently living in the USA with frequent trips to Europe and other places in the world. I am a global citizen and proud of it. The many cultures I've come across in my life are in this adventure with textiles and pattern and more. I hope you join in some ways on the journey. It's been a varied one!
Wondering about the name of the business?
Amaranthine originated from the Greek word 'amaranthos' (immortal or unfading) 'anthos' meaning flower. Amaranthine means undying, immortal and eternally beautiful. I associate that with crafts and their survival. I thought it was fitting!
Thanks for reading and supporting!
