Geszeft, a new boutique in Katowice, Poland, promotes local artists and fashion designers by selling apparel and accessories in an attractive modern space.

Designed by Joanna Wołoszyn and Daria Barnaś, the shop is divided between two rooms, one of which houses a small cafe where and an area where books and other items are displayed on shelves. The shop's owner, Michal Kubieniec, said the idea was to create a well-designed space to serve as a showcase for designs and clothing created locally in Katowice and the surrounding Silesia region, which straddles the borders of Poland, the Czech Republic, and Germany.

"Geszeft is a store which represents local products," Kubieniec says by email. "It's a place which finds important to promote young Silesian fashion and to project [local] designers, artists, and writers. Jewelry made from coal, T-shirts that promote local language, Silesian illustrations, and books describing modern local architecture are some of the examples we offer. Our point is to show the identity of the region in a new, modern way, based on pure Silesian tradition and proudly taking the best it's got."
