Sarah from Cari Slings

The owner of Cari Slings, a North Carolina, USA based company which produces unique textile babywearing wraps. A customer since 2014. We worked on 10+ projects together.

“When we collaborate on an idea, we brainstorm different concepts, I let Oksana know what I would like, and within a few days, she provides me with a first draft design that always exceeds my expectations.”

“When Cari Slings was still in its infancy, I was primarily using mill stock designs. I was very happy with our original designs, but I felt the need to start searching for designers that connected a bit more with my aesthetic.

I stumbled upon a beautiful underwater design by Oksana late one night and loved her work immediately. I found the designer’s name and site and perused her website. I loved everything that I saw, and contacted Oksana enquiring if she would be interested in collaborating with me. She responded and let me know that she had recently given birth and was taking a little bit of time to spend with her family, and asked if I could get back in touch with her in a month or two. I did not hesitate to follow up, and upon getting back in touch, we worked out the details and she took my simple ideas and turned them into a beautiful Under The Sea design.

Since that first project, Oksana and I have collaborated further and she has produced some very fun and beautiful designs for Cari Slings. She has created our Owl Post (http://www.carislings.com/chapters/Owl-Post), Neverending (http://www.carislings.com/chapters/Neverending), The ‘Verse (http://www.carislings.com/chapters/the-verse), #solidarity (a Facebook group exclusive design), our Avatar inspired design (another Facebook group exclusive) and a few more designs that are still “under wraps”.

Oksana is a truly gifted artist. She is an absolute pleasure to work with. When we collaborate on an idea, we brainstorm different concepts, I let Oksana know what I would like, and within a few days, she provides me with a first draft design that always exceeds my expectations. Her artistry translates onto our woven fabric beautifully, and my customers and myself are always so thrilled.

If one is looking for an artist who puts her heart into her work, and if one is looking for a designer who will not just meet, but exceed your expectations, please do not hesitant to get in touch with Oksana. I cannot sing her praises enough. Her work speaks for itself.

Thank you kindly Oksana. :)”

“I was looking for an illustrator to help translate my ideas into beautiful patterns for my handbag business, and also to offer their views and ideas on what will and won’t work…I loved working with Oksancia…”

“I first discovered Oksancia’s work on Spoonflower and subsequently on Shutterstock. At the time I was looking for an illustrator to help translate my ideas into beautiful patterns for my handbag business, and also to offer their views and ideas on what will and won’t work. Her work to me is clean yet meticulous, and although there is a wide variety in her work, they are all beautiful.
I loved working with Oksancia, she was quick to understand my (jumbled and sometimes vague!) ideas and voila, magically produce patterns which require just a few tiny tweaks here and there.
I highly recommend anyone looking for an illustrator to contact her. I personally can’t wait to collaborate with her again, hopefully sooner rather than later!”

“I found Oksancia when I was looking for a surface pattern designer who could create unique patterns for my fabric bag linings.  Her style was just what I was looking for, but I was also impressed by her ability to create something really unique for me.
We spent some time talking about my vision for my business, the colour schemes, and the overall look I was trying to achieve with my products.  Oksana was really enthusiastic and understood what I wanted to create.
As soon as I saw the pattern she created for me I was thrilled with it.  It was really perfect!  If you are looking for a designer who can really come on-board with your vision and produce something unique for your brand, I would highly recommend Oksancia.”
