Marija Đorđević

Designer and visual artist

Marija Đorđević studied design, and then visual arts in Belgrade, Prague and Dresden. She recorded video art works and short films by 2012, when things turned and she became dedicated to working with leather. She designs and manufactures leather bags in a workshop for two people in Dorćol, Belgrade, and is one half of the Naša Posla company. They work as designers of footwear and bags in Belgrade. They started in 2012 by joining forces with the shoe maker from Zrenjanin, Miša Surutka. They learned to work with the skin by working alongside him. Their design stems from the craftsmanship and nature of this traditional material, leather.
