MYK professes a convergence of creative ideas inspired by fashion, art, and interior design. The objects comprise the intention of soft sculptures and interior art. Everything is meticulously handcrafted in Germany and each object being of unique nature. The materials and the skilful processing are subject to the highest quality standards.
For the designer it is very important always to work with extraordinary value of materials, affected from years of professional work as a fashion designer: The wool is from several Italian suppliers and most of the materials are sourced from Germany and Europe. All the handcrafting work like crochet, knit, embroidery, braiding, and pompon bundling and cutting is done from handcrafting women around the country and Berlin. Lots of them are from Turkish origin. They have their dignified manual skills passed down generations. The converting of the vintage furniture, MYK also works with, requires a manufacturing with an established carpenter and upholsterer also based in Berlin. At the end each single object is sculptured and finished by the designer Myra Klose herself and her assistants in MYK´s studio located in one of Berlins most creative part Kreuzberg. Each MYK-object is certified and gets a serial number. Some of them are one of a kind and some are limited to small editions.
