The space has its roots in Soviet-era Georgia, when it was created as a sewing factory called “Nino”. The Flying Painter name comes from a painting of the same name by Georgian modernist painter, Petre Otskheli.
These days, the Flying Painter combines three things: conceptual clothing and accessories designed by artists, designer products, and Soviet kitsch.
Every object at the Flying Painter has its own character based on the fascinating stories of its creator.
In the store, you’ll find one-of-a-kind hand-sewn coats, brooches created using Soviet tableware, clothes inspired by Persian heroic epics, modern Kabalakhis, handmade leather bags, ceramic jewelry, cups, “farewell” handkerchiefs, silver jewelry, and glass bottles. In short, you’ll find a dazzling variety of unique objects to take back home with you!
For those wanting to travel back in time, it is even possible to buy clothes that were sewn in the factory “Nino”, at the end of the 1980s.
