Women's Day

(FIRST IN ENG , ZA ŽLAHTNO DOMAČO BESEDO, PA POSKROLAJ) What’s the first thing I think of when I say Women’s Day?  🌹 Firstly, this is the day I must bring my mother and my mother-in-law flowers or else I will, without a doubt, listen to “It would have been so nice if someone remembered me....

The preparations began two weeks prior, and the schoolroom was filled with toiled paper flowers, pinecone hearts...

Blazno resno o kavi z Escobarjem

Ni skrivnost, da punce iz Polonapolona tima naravnost obožujemo kavo. In to ne katerokoli, smo z leti postale izbirčne. Če bi lahko izbirale, bi vsak dan kofetale s kavo iz vrhniške pražarne Escobar.  Escobar smo odkrile par let nazaj v Mladinski knjigi, za poskusit kupile 100g njihove hišne mešanice in ljubezen na prvi okus je bila rojena. Od tistega dne se večkrat pocrkljamo z aromatiziranimi kavicami, najraje imamo slano karamelo pa tisto s cimetom in lešnikom.

FRIDA COLLECTION

#Frida #FridaKahlo #illustration #porcelain

In November 2019 we introduced our very first collection "FRIDA".  "Frida collection" was inspired by the paintings and life of Frida Kahlo. Our Frida is a lover of long embroidered skirts and monkeys. She spends her time painting "self-portrait with peasant braids and flowers in hair", is attracted to heavyweight artists and is permanently tweezerless.

Strolling down the Zagreb bookshelves with Kata Njavro

We adore Zagreb. There is always some sort of excitement with butterflies in our stomach when we go there for a business meeting. Of course, we always find time to take a walk down its charming streets and drink coffee in one of their finest cafes, maybe even have a croissant. Even if we are on a diet.One of our stops is always a small soulful bookshop Hoču knjigu on Bogovičeva 5. It is one of those bookshops you have to take a look inside. And when you come inside, you get the nicest welcome, the best advice on the...
