Petra Bartels, clothing

Clothing

I design and realize clothes and accessories using natural fabrics and felt. Every piece is handmade by myself. At the beginning, my client is watching my work and often gets inspired by them, so that after we can work out together an individual dress for her. In this way, my ideas and skills are connected with the ideas of the person, who will wear it. For me all that means happiness. I realize clothing for every day and special moments, like wedding-dresses or costumes for theatre and dance. I’m working only with natural materials, linen, cotton, hemp, nettle, silk and wool. The aspect of ecology and sustainability of the products I work with, are very important for me, so that the nature is part of the dress.
Sometimes I like to use “antique” clothes, used clothing and fabrics, discovering new aspects and transforming them into a “modern” piece. Cloth with a story and telling stories.
