Artist | BRO


Silk, cotton and freedom 

What do you imagine when you think of embroidery? Let us guess – a floral patterned doily your grandma made back in her days? So did we. At least until we met Ivana Kocmanová alias BRO. 

In the world where photos are so accessible that we take them for granted, BRO decided to entrust her memories to fabric instead. She went through some of her old photos and picked those that inspired her. She turned the photos into sketches first, transferred them onto fabric and… a long-lasting memory was born! 

What started as a hobby took off as others discovered her designs on Instagram. In 2018 she organized her first exhibition in the Krystal gallery in Havířov and a year later, she was nominated for the Best New Designer Collection Award at Designblok. We can’t wait to see what she does next!
