Your profile as an entrepreneur
I registered as private entrepreneur (a legal status in Ukraine that allows conducting entrepreneurial activities and hiring up 10 employees within annual revenue up to 45000 Euro) in 2009 when on my maternity leave I started making handmade postcards and selling them to the local shops. Later on I opened little shop to sell local handmade souvenirs: toys, accessories, postcards. Gradually along with my partner we developed floral decoration business and started to decorate wedding and big celebration. Parallel to this I founded Shuflia brand family manufacturer of leather made goods (http://shfl.com.ua/). In 2013 I opened Bukvica open studio for silk-screen printing and sewing of casual cotton apparel (http://bukvica.com.ua/) that took part at the 2018 Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada exhibition within the Canada-Ukraine Trade and Investment Support (CUTIS) Project. FRAMIORE - founded in a town of the Western Ukraine - is an alternative to the current fashion industry trends of low quality fast fashion design and production. We craft our clothes keeping in mind, timeless - clean & functional - design originated from the world cultures; high quality, environmentally sound, durable textiles; manufacturing taking place in our home town (Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine).Currently there are 9 people working with me.
