There will be from 1. July aplied new rules for charging EU VAT rates that will be chosen according the billing country. The other (Non. EU) countries will get the product prices (inc. SK VAT) that are shown in the shop. The EU countries, if other than 20% VAT will have the adjustment made during the checking out process. This change is still in a testing stage so apologies and possibly report any weird calculations.

About this set:
A wooden scoop and a ‘helping’ stick are made of hawthorn wood. A natural odourless oil was applied and the wood is protected against water/humidity so it may be washed, rinsed by water.
The scoop and two other utensils are bright, light wood colour. The scoop shape is more flat and has this almost invisible stand on the bottom. It’s curves are nicely balanced and looking at its shape from any angle gives its beauty. It may be used for bigger leaves teas still ball shaped oolongs also will ‘slide’ into a teapot.
The stick is delicately made, with very slight curves and lines co-designed with the slide/scoop.
Pieces like this are born under hands of a craftsman, they are coming alive while carved and they are never imitated. No copies as Milan said. Lately asked for a similar vessel to be carved failed with a piece that he could not finish. I asked him last time I met him, ‘why don’t you use a logo, a mark to identify you pieces?’. He said ‘ these pieces are me and they are not the logo, I am not the brand. Then I realized how true this is. The art piece itself is the brand.
These wooden pieces went through a long ‘process of creation’. Milan, the woodcarver, finds pieces in a forest, pieces that are ‘dead wood’. Takes them home and then have these pieces await their ‘fate’. Wooden pieces are carved only when time allows Milan to work on them. Slowly wooden pieces are formed into usable tools. Carving and polishing takes ages (days) to have a final scoop ready to use. Each piece has natural oil applied that was tried for years and does not get stale.
