Located in the center of Split, in Zadarska Street, local brand ‘Put Svile’ has been successfully building its brand for the past four years. Founder Blaženka Benkus, originally from Varaždin, has found her new home in the town at the foot of Marjan Hill, introducing garments as works of art. Her signature art creations are made of the finest material – silk.
– I have incorporated my life motto into my business, and it’s a simple one: Always do your best. So in this case, if we carefully pick out paint colours, precisely brush them onto the finest material in the world, sew a tailor-made dress with your name on the tag so that every garment is unique, then I think that we’ve succeeded. It often seems to us that we have chosen the harder path because combining fashion and art, while employing more people can be very challenging. Still, we are persistent! It is said that the truth is one and that you cannot get lost in it. That is how our customers really recognize originality and quality, and they prove it to us every day. It is a joy and a great happiness to see our uniques go to all parts of the world. My Silk Road is woven of love, and love always finds its way. ” – Blaženka Benkus –
