Risks and challenges

Since more than two years we have been building relationships with communities, workers and artisans in Cambodia as well as Bosnia. During this time, we’ve introduced numerous organisational and quality control techniques that help us to satisfy the demand of nowadays markets.

Nevertheless, all our products are handmade and inconsistencies are part of the product and our brand. We don’t see this as an obstacle, we see it as a chance.

    Eine einzigartige Woche steht dir bevor! Mit inbegriffen: Essen, Reisen sowie Übernachtungen - und glaub uns, das werden keine 0815 Hotelübernachtungen.
