Helena Cernigoj is the creator, designer and fibre artisan behind her brand of accessories, Helena Margareta.
Helena started her company in 2003 in a small studio in Robson, British Columbia, with her first line of luxurious alpaca shawls and scarves.
The line of products has evolved over the years from funky hats to fine lace shawls and later, to the popular Brillianto ribbon shawl that was part of her line for over a decade.
Fashion is ever-changing, and so do the beautiful offerings out of the studio at Helena Margareta. Each year, something new is added, with explorations in colour and texture so that each creation always breathes fresh and innovative.
Helena's work is all hand-made, each piece unique with hand-dyed colour. The ever-popular Necklace scarves and silky Ribbon scarves have been part of the Helena Margareta collection for over 12 years and continue to be fan favourites.
The new line of Bohemian shawls showcases natural and specialty fibres in one-of-a-kind combinations of silk, cotton, bamboo, alpaca, merino-silk, viscoze and microfibres in a versatile knit. These special creations offer fantastic flair and feel amazing to wear.
You can find Helena Margareta shawls and scarves at selected Canadian galleries and at Canadian artisan shows.
