Design studio Leis aims to revive the old woodcraft tradition called ‘suha roba’ that was born in Slovenia amidst one of Europe’s most forested areas centuries ago. Combining contemporary design and long-established hand-crafting skills, the brand’s purpose is to manufacture appealing, user-friendly and well-designed products made strictly with locally sourced beech. Their first product is a three-piece kitchenware set (one of the pieces is shown above).
