Welcome to Zenful Designs! What started out a unique jewelry brand, which in 2017 evolved into an apparel and home decor as well, as we started making crochet and macrame pieces. But one thing remains the same: we take pride in our work and can guarantee you that all of these pieces are always one of a kind, never to be repeated or duplicated. They are always of the highest quality materials, meant to last you a lifetime and bring you a lot of joy (and compliments!) We hope the customer can see, feel and recognize the authenticity of the patterns and designs used, as well and the unique yarn and colour combinations in each creation. Please keep in mind that we take custom orders, so if you have a particular design or color in mind, feel free to contact us and we can discuss it further.
About Irina: a self-taught fiber artist who has been working with natural fibers such as cotton rope, linen and wool to more modern yarn such as silk rayon and bamboo. There is a right yarn for every piece and design and Irina skillfully weaves it all, creating unique pieces that are a true statement of wearable art rather than simply 'clothing'. These pieces are often one of a kind, with colourful yet sophisticated patterns, meant to invoke an emotional reaction from its owner. Over the years, she has made everything from vests, summer tops, coverups, to lace shawls and 'freeform' crochet. Irina’s favourite designs are the “mermaid top” out of contrasting bamboo and viscose yarn in a freeform style.
Freeform crochet is crocheting without the use of patterns to create a one-of-a-kind, unique item that cannot be replicated. Freeform involves crocheting in an organic, free flowing style, beyond rows and rounds of traditional crochet. Irina’s particular style involves creating several organic spiral-like motifs, both large and small, - and piecing them together. The process is both captivating and extremely time-consuming, as a result we only carry a very limited selection of these tops on the website.
