Overview

We are a small family business where you can find beautiful and unique wood bolws, which are made by the owner, the work area is in the same place so we extend the invitation to all our customers to visit the workshop and observe the process. We also have jewelry that is made also by the owner and her daughter, some made from recycled paper, seeds, and more. We hope to see you soon!
