What Happened

Creative studio for all things outdoor. Custom products and gear repairs.

In: Gear >

After spending 7 years managing all the visual content of the brand Blind Chic--an urban oriented backpack brand--my mind started to shift towards more conscious way of creating. I didn’t want to be a part of already oversaturated consumerism market and was not anymore fulfilled creatively as ‘spiritually’. After a lot of thinking and my involvement in outdoor industry my attention came to outdoor gear repairs.

Luckily enough I got to spent 3 weeks as an intern with Barbara Heinze and not she only tought me everything about technical repairs but became my dear friend. Shortly when I left Budapest, I was offered a job with Patagonia’s Worn Wear program and in no time I was touring with a group of amazing people, eager to fix clothing and spread knowledge and inspire people to fix their clothes instead of getting rid of them.

I now run a creative studio for all things outdoor, where I deal with repairs and custom products in Slovenia, called WHAT HAPPENED.

I work on several projects, such as repurposing old gear, workshops, DIY tutorials and educating people on how to take care of their garments beside designing a long lasting outdoor equipment for bikepacking and mountaineering.

I am Neza Peterca, a wild flower from Slovenia. Outside of What Happened, my time is invested in in bikepacking and trying to inspire more women to get out on their bikes and explore the world around them more independently. Beside that I am part of the ongoing training to become part of the Slovenian Mountain rescue team.
