BEHIND THE SCENES
I am Kriszta Kemeny.
A Hungarian in Australia with a very colourful and artistic background.
I had a small business for 18 years, called Folt Bolt, where I designed and produced home accessories with patchwork technique, accessories for children’s rooms (bedcovers,pillow cases,
wallhangings, textile pictures, softies, sleeping bags) unique
felt+bead necklaces, well-known and distinctive women’s and children’s bags and skirts.
I made gift packaging for special occasions and designed and produced merchandising gifts for companies such as : L’Oreal,
Sanoma and Unilever.
In 2012 when I finished my business in Hungary, changed the
content of Folt Bolt’s facebook page.
As I no longer had any products to show, I decided to showcase the amazing artworks of other talented artists I admired.
Folt Bolt’s facebook page soon became very popular and known internationally.
In 2022 I took a deep breath and started to build this website, MANOfestum, that I have dreamed about for years!
My goal was to create a directory website for arts&crafts lovers, creatives. A site, where they can easily find courses, classes,
workshops, patterns and tutorials for their upcoming projects.
Where they are notified about sales, coupons and can participate
in competitions, art challenges.
I am continuing in the way I started, hoping it helps the artists
and artisans to get noticed!
Hope to see your creations on MANOfestum!
