Światło: an ode to matrilineal heritage, a celebration of migration and insatiable wanderlust. Our business was born in New York City heavily inspiring our use of contrast colours, black accents and and a devil-may-care joie de vivre found in the heartbeat of beloved Brooklyn streets. Collections crafted from marvellous artisan textiles sourced directly from their makers and post industrial + post consumer recycled fabrics.
We spend most of the year now living in India nurturing relationships with our supply chain of small stitching units and traditional craftspeople across the country. Together we can efficiently develop the work to bring value and creative fulfillment to all involved
Światło pieces are products of creative collaboration with every person who contributes to their making alongside founder Liz Hartman. A Parsons alumni who cut her industry teeth as a technical designer at Kenneth Cole and Ralph Lauren, Liz fell in love with Indian craft and culture on her first visit in 2016. With an eye for colour and pattern coordination coupled with experience in production management, Liz knows what fit and silhouette decisions to make herself and what creative calls should be made by the talented people who handcraft the garments. Światło pieces are special labours of love created and energetically infused by all who’ve had a hand in their making.
“When we see the hand in a product, we see divinity manifest
We are supporting those who channel Source into our physical world”
