AGBU W.E. Collection: Mosh Studio

$25.00

Mosh Studio is the lifelong dream of a little girl come true. It is situated in one of the picturesque cities of Armenia – Yeghegnadzor. The studio represents an interesting educational and cultural platform, where a dozen of women and girls have been engaged in textile manufacturing, handcraft, master classes and exhibitions for around 9 year.

The specifics of the production is that every item has a touch of handmade, be it in batik technique, an application,
embroidery, crochet work, beadwork, or knitting work.

Flower prints are common in Armenia - in miniature, Armenian folk costumes, and we can find them on khachkars in Vayots Dzor as well. “MOSH” also uses them for its creations abundantly. Traditionally the flower has been perceived as a symbol of eternal youth; in ancient Armenian ornamental art, floral motifs have symbolized fertility. Thus, we can see them reflected in flowery and botanical prints typical of traditional costumes of women given their prerogative to conceive.

Batik, by which the brand is mostly known, is a technique of hand painting the fabric using special paints. The frocks and scarfs should first be ironed with paper and then washed in lukewarm water.
