The second FEEL THE EARTH collection continues the legacy of working closely with craftsmen from Maramures, Transylvania, whilst introducing modern and authentic cultural designs, including a new line of fine jewellery, both featuring Lily of the Valley, 'Lacramioare' in Romanian, as its main motif.

O nouă conștiință umană, în armonie cu Pământul, perceput ca o ființă vie, este viziunea, dar și manifestul colecției MA-RA-MI pentru 2021.

Our new collection is dedicated to the powerful, yet soft and vulnerable women. The ones who are not afraid to speak their minds, who work hard every day to be a better version of themselves. The business women, the mothers, the daughters, the rebel souls, the women who enjoy every moment of their lives. The brave ones. The unfearful. We recognize you!

We embarked on a journey of authenticity where we can connect to our ancestors and rediscover the beauty of the simple things. Our craftsmen from Maramureș taught us all the secrets they learned from their parents and their grandparents. What comes from their hands is pure magic, a real work of art created with love, passion and patience.

A wool journey: from fashion design to art installation MA RA MI continues its mission to promote Romanian authentic design with a new project - “A wool journey: from fashion design to art installation”. Andra Clițan creates a collection based exclusively on wool, working closely with craftsmen from Maramureș.  The project, which started at the beginning of 2019, has two main objectives: to create a collection using natural fabrics as wool, adding traditional motifs and inspiration from different parts of Romania, and to document the entire process of processing wool, creating an art installation that follows this journey. The first step was to create the sketches of the future pieces of the collection, followed by the close collaboration with each craftsman in order to choose the fabrics. The next stage implied the actual manufacturing of the garments, documenting the entire journey of wool processing and the photo shooting. The final step is represented by the art installation, which will include both the fashion collection and the photo-video documentation elements made during the project. In the space dedicated to the art installation there will be a conference on smart textiles and new trends in sustainable fashion, with international guests. The art installation, that will include the pieces of the collection and the documentation of the entire process, will be exhibited from October 27 to November 10, 2019.

MaRaMi takes you on a journey back in time when simplicity was the most important aspect of life. Our ancestors used natural fabrics, like wool, to create beautiful pieces of clothing - functional, comfortable and easy to wear.

Once upon a time, when MA RA MI was just a dream, the Romanian traditional elements crafted by local artisans where used for a one of a kind "couture" collection -  signed by Philippe Guilet in 2011/2012 for 100%.RO project. Back then Andra Clitan, the founder of MA RA MI, was the Studio Director for this great project, and one of her most important duties was to give consultancy on Romanian traditional art and crafts. 100%.RO was a unique project that inspired many people, not just the team and the public, but also the craftsmen from different areas in Romania, showing them that their work is highly appreciated and can be the fundament of an exquisite haute couture collection.

The International Textile Fair Dubai 2015 is an excellent place to meet professionals in fashion - this year's edition was a great selection of people, trends and topics. I had the chance to attend this event as a speaker, presenting my work as a true showcase of multicultural diversity: a glimpse of Transylvanian crafts in the Middle East. It is more and more obvious for everybody that MA RA MI is rather an international brand than simply a Romanian oriented one.
