Kitna: the hipster jewellery line reviving Bulgaria’s folk embroidery

5 February 2018

Sofia-based design brand Kitna is reviving the art of traditional Bulgarian embroidery by putting a contemporary twist on ancient designs.

Inspired by the vivid colours and intricate designs of the country’s rich folk art, the brand already sells a handmade range of earrings, necklaces, rings and chokers. Many of the pieces echo designs from individual regions or invoke traditional natural plant and animal motifs.
