The mother and daughter partnership behind Trgovina IKA strive to bring the very highest quality products from some of Slovenia’s young designers and innovators to their shelves. To find out more about them, read our interview with Iva Renčelj here.

Gigodesign

These stylish and contemporary products are produced from locally sourced beechwood and expertly sculptured into a range of sleek kitchen accessories that not only look great but also function perfectly. They make a welcome addition to any kitchen.

Domatri

The inspiration for Domatri’s unique products comes from the mighty Triglav mountain. The range includes keyrings, magnets, framed artworks, cutting boards and shelves, all shaped to honour Slovenia’s highest mountain peak. All products are hand painted and made from Slovene walnut wood, with a love of nature running through them.

Mimi Maria Magdalena

The charm of Ljubljana is beautifully captured in this range of colourful artworks from Mimi Maria Magdalena. Whether you're looking to drop someone a postcard or on the lookout for a larger picture, these pieces will grace any wall - look out for the dragons!

Kukamkuro 

Kukamkuro's range of tea-towels and cork coasters will bring joy to any home. Through their vibrant colours and delicate patterns these beautifully crafted pieces show the true diversity of Slovenia. Perfect for gifts but better to keep for oneself

Polonapolona

If there's a gift that's suitable for anyone then this surely could be it. Who wouldn't want a new tea or coffee cup with their favourite TV, musical or movie hero sketched onto the side? Choose from a range including; David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Sherlock Holmes or Albert Einstein to name but a few. All products come beautifully boxed so there's ready made gift right there!

Jagababa

Aprons, lace mats, bread bags, tea towels, napkins and much more. All Jagababa products are lovingly handmade and bare a simple yet contemporary design that would brighten any room. These high quality products make excellent gifts - even if they do look too good to use!

Baraga

Baraga is the work of painter and fibre artist Ksenija Baraga who first began developing scarves in 2008 (Baraga Scarves). The scarves are produced locally and the colourful designs are the captured beautifully on the delicate woven fabrics. These high quality scarves have also been given as by the Protocol of the Republic of Slovenia.

Beezeeb

Beezeeb is a story about waxed cloths that keep your food fresh, contribute to reducing waste and can be used multiple times. They are made of 100 % cotton and pure beeswax, bio coconut oil, bio jojoba oil and with handpicked pine spruce from Slovenian forests.

Tide of Glaze

A finely grained natural soil bears innumerable years of memories. Tide of Glaze creates useful ceramics on the pottery wheel, which at the time of mass production, embodies authenticity, slows down the rhythm of life, and gives the user a new feeling. Making ceramics is a slow art. It takes time and attention, because each stage of production tells and leaves its story. This gives the product its individuality and personality.

KAAITA

KAAITA is a creative manufacture, passionate about designing and producing things that have positive effect on everyday life. KAAITA prefers handmade, sustainable and fair trade. Above all KAAITA loves making emotionally powerful products that are all made in Slovenia. People love her slippers made of recycled plastic bottles.
