The magnet TEPE is the creative labour of the collaboration between architect Penka Stancheva and illustrator Rosalina Burkova.

We publish some of the initial thoughts of Penka Stancheva when imagining the souvenir.

As a person born and raised in this city, to me Plovdiv is the “City of Tepeta”. And for the guests of the city they are an important sign and direct geographical association with this place.

My work with Rosalina Burkova was a wonderful symbiosis and it happened with ease. If it were up to me, on another budget, I would go back to the idea and make our magnet as a game-puzzle of magnets, each representing one of the hills (tepe) of the city.
