BEHIND THE SCENES
I am Kriszta Kemeny.
A Hungarian in Australia with a very colourful and artistic background.
I had a small business for 18 years where I designed and produced home accessories with patchwork technique, accessories for children’s rooms (bedcovers,pillow cases, wallhangings, textile pictures, softies, sleeping bags), unique felt+bead necklaces, well-known and distinctive women's and children’s bags and skirts.
I made gift packaging for special occasions and designed and produced merchandising gifts for companies such as : L’Oreal, Sanoma and Unilever.
In 2012 when I finished my business in
Hungary, I changed the content of Folt Bolt's facebook page.
As I no longer had any products to show, I decided to showcase the amazing artworks of other talented artists I admired.
Folt Bolt's facebook page soon became very popular and known internationally.
The number of Folt Bolt's followers is growing on average
by 300-500 new people per day, from all around the world.
I am continuing in the way I started, hoping it helps the featured, showcased artists!
What does Folt Bolt mean?
Folt Bolt was my small business's name.
In Hungarian: Folt=Patch Bolt=Shop...as I had a patchwork shop before. Because facebook doesn't allow a change of name to businesses with over 200 followers, I have kept the same name.
How do I decide who to showcase?
The answer is simply: I showcase what I like.
One of the secrets of Folt Bolt's success is the consistency of style.
