KOVÁCS MÓNI textile artist and designer, founder of KOMONKA Textile.
My hand-woven textiles are characterised by a unique treatment of surfaces and special use of materials. With its contrasting glossed and matte, soft and hard surfaces, to my collection of metallic textiles seeks to imitate nature. The interplay of metallic and cotton threads creates a special light effect that recalls the Sun’s glitter and water’s clarity within the home. Each textile is unique and adapted to its surrounding interior.
