Our passion is to produce unique and high-quality costumes. I have always loved handicraft and once I used to sew clothes as a hobby. Sewing inspired me so much that I decided to study to become dressmaker. When my daughter was eight years old she started aesthetic group gymnastics. I watched her trainings, shows and competitions. Language of the athletes’ motions, their fusible harmonic wholesomeness with the music, their energy flow and all the glowing inspired me to try making a competition costume. I wanted my own daughter a beautiful, high-quality and sustainable costume. After sewing the costume, I showed it to my daughter’s team’s coaches and they wanted to order the whole team similar costumes. That’s when the story of Gratsia (now Aistarg) begun. I founded the company in 2013 and started producing costumes for teams.

Designer

When I was a child, I used to watch enchanted when my mother drew and painted different kinds of remembrances and artworks. I dreamed of being as good at drawing and painting as her. I would sit hours and hours beside her just watching how she captured small details with the colors. That and the world of clothing made big impression on me. Already as a kid, I began designing and manufacturing clothes for dolls. I started to dream of profession of a designer. First my road led to studies of an art teacher. But still after graduation my thoughts were in clothing designing. I went to university to study interior designing and now I am graduating from there as clothing designer. I worked as designer in Russia for seven years and 2015 I moved to Finland to continue as designer in Gratsia (now Aistarg). I really love my job. I get inspired from every athlete’s performance and design, paint and create unique costume fit just for her/his theme.
