Our story

My name is Ctirad and I am going to tell you about how this all started. We are originally from the Beskydy mountains in the Czech Republic. Our first dream was to preserve the beauty of old crafts and to enable gentlemen and ladies to express themselves without words. This was a first impuls to start making wooden accessories. But let’s start from the beginning, way before the first wooden bow tie was made, in year...

With our first wooden wallet there is also a first obstacle – the wallet breaks and we need to start again. The production process needs to change so we are able to create a durable wooden wallet which will sustain greater pressure.
