A fabric and design company was recently brought to our attention, and I must admit to being more than a little impressed. An artist who goes by one name—Zuzka—is a third generation, Prague-born designer who has memories of playing with the dolls and fabrics from the far east that her great-grandmother imported into the Austro-Hungarian Empire. When her family immigrated into Israel, she became deeply inspired by the colors and style of the Middle East, and after finishing her education in Tel Aviv and in Rome, Zuzka established Fabricology in New York City.

Zuzka says that her designs owe as much to art history as to her multi-cultural background. She says that she was influenced by the Austrian Secessionist Movement and the Wiener Werkstatte’s fascination with the Orient. Her embroideries are created in war-torn Kashmir and along the banks of the Ganges in the holy city of Varanasi.

Her one of a kind garments may be found in stores across the United States including Bergdorf Goodman in New York City, Neiman Marcus, Santa Fe Weaving Gallery, Christine Foley in San Francisco, Jackson Hole Traders in Wyoming, and Frances Heffernan in Chicago.
