I wanted to design products that reference old and forgotten traditions. I wanted to look deep in the past and breathe new life into the ideas of lost generations. Symbolism plays a part in human connection because people are constantly looking for deeper meaning. Whether it’s in the stars, drawn on a cave wall or in modern visual content. We contribute the meaning ourselves, it all relies on interpretation. My ''DeCODEmE' collection is a collection inspired by an old traditional Eastern European symbol, Bulgarian in origin. I wanted to use my collection to communicate the symbolism of the past. These symbols will enable me to create meaningful content that triggers cultural associations.
