TAMARA GIBUS – MARA GIBBUCCI is a design company of Tamara
Gibus, visual artist, graduate of two fine arts academies – Kiev in Ukraine and Lodz in Poland.
Since July 1981, the artist has been creating fashion collections for clients from United States, Canada, Great Britain, France, Belgium, Italy, Luxembourg, Austria, Spain, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Scandinavia countries and Japan.
For 40 years she has given an important place to the creation of clothes ecology which are not only made with natural materials such as linen or high quality wool, but also were created under ethical conditions because today “ecology” means “morality”. The style of these author collections is the result of the search for harmony between the asceticism of the form and the decorative character details, it is a continuous aspiration of the artist to create an innovative garment, personal and at the same time perfectly functional.
One of the main characteristics of the Mara Gibbucci collection is its cut perfect, and it is not only a cut in the classic sense of the word, but also solutions practiced in the workshops of the old masters who created the lines of the garment by draping and pleating the fabric over the silhouette, the cut being the derived from fabric sculpture.
My clothes are supposed to make people happy. I strive to bring happiness and light, enjoyment of the surrounding world and satisfaction that can be transformed into willingness to help others.
Fashion connoisseurs estimate the value of a product by putting it “in
inside out”, here the lack of lining allows one to see the perfect realization of the seams with braid, piping, etc.
Mara Gibbucci’s collections are distinguished by their handcrafting,
visible in the meticulous details, and above all in the appliqués with the motifs of plants and of flowers, often inspired by the art of ancient cultures. One of the strengths of these collections is, without a doubt, their uniqueness, short and frequent series guaranteeing the individuality of the women who wear them.
All our products are made in Poland in our atelier in the most famous city in Poland in the textile industry, i.e. in Łódź.
The designer draws her inspiration from the world around her, but tries to look only at the positive aspects of our lives. Three or four times a year, she flies to Italy, Spain and France in order to find inspiration in creativity.

The clothes we offer are 100% ecological.
They are compliant to the strictest environmental standards worldwide. The fabrics used are: 100% pure linen mainly from Italy.
It’s ecological – tested by European Chemical and Textile Laboratories.
It is in particular the linen we use, from renowned Italian companies, which has been produced using traditional methods, mostly manual, and according to a technology that does not use heavy metals, whose harmfulness is known, such as cadmium or lead, etc. (generally present in synthetic fabrics, and especially in their dyes).
To make our clothes, we also use ecological yarns, with a linen-cotton sheath, which have been subjected to antiallergic treatment. Buttons, buckles and all the other accessories we use are always natural, made of walnut bark, coconut or fine stones.
Once sewn, each garment is washed twice with special products
antiallergic, and then ironed under pressure. Such a finish guarantees its ecological purity and 100% antiallergic.
