" Creativity is the Way I Share my Soul with the World " – Brene Brown

I studied Level 3 extended Diploma in Art and Design in Blackburn and developed a strong interest in surface pattern design. I created a range of colourful, tropical patterns for my final project, printed them on fabrics and made my first collection of children clothes.
This is how my brand Oli & Mi was born.
I’m originally from Poland and I came to live in the UK in 2008. After a year of living here I became a mum of a beautiful girl and, 2 years later, my son was born. Being a full time parent was a great thing but I felt like there was something missing in my life.

As a teenager I really enjoyed sewing, drawing and painting. I’ve always been a very creative person and in 2015 I decided to go to college to get more skills and open a small clothing business. I think that this was the best decision in my life.

All my pattern designs are hand drawn and designed by myself using digital editing in Photoshop and Illustrator. They are printed on high quality fabrics by Contrado, a printing company based in London.
