Para Dys is a design studio by Kristine Salviejo & Giuliana Raggiani - specializing in knits and jewelry. The duo met at Parsons School of Design in New York in 2008. Para Dys began in 2013 out of mutual habits of traveling, floating and daydreaming. Although the story began in the Lower East Side, the team splits its time between Europe and the United States - currently Berlin, Los Angeles and New York. The studio offers consulting, concept development, material and technique exploration, sample making and small production.
