The person behind the first Czech design concept store in Ostrava is Ivana Mifková, joined by Johana Mojáková a year later. Both co-owners have also established their own sustainable clothing brands. The main idea has stayed the same over the years -- to offer Ostrava a quality range of products made by renowned designers, as well as to support local and emerging talented artists from the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Another key idea was to open a concept store as a reaction to the abandoned and empty city center when the locals began to flow into the newly opened shopping center. It turned out that this big risk paid off -the store had the potential to appeal to
customers and people started coming back for more. This is what lead the owners to further develop the store.
