Lajla is an architect, a weaver and most of all, a hat designer. This combined experience imbues her work with a unique approach to form and structure. Beside humor and playfulness of Lajla's creations, there is always a strict balance between form, material and colour.
As a true artist, Lajla has a passion and commitment to discovery. New shapes are constantly evolving in Lajla's mind. Her hats are often seen as portable sculptures, inspired by architecture and landscapes.
For her mastery of design and craftsmanship, she received several awards.
Beside Circle Craft Gallery and Circle Craft Christmas Market, Lajla's work is available online at www.lajla.ca and at selected shows in Canada.
