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.

Funky Dragomir

It's impossible to be in Ljubljana and not mention dragons and what better way to celebrate the wondrous fire-breathers than a product from the Funky Dragomir range. With a choice of t-shirts, temporary tattoos, pillows, ink-stamps or even brandy, there's surely something for everyone.

Teja Ideja

Teja Ideja is the work of artist Teja Klec whose designs of cards, notebooks, coffee cups and pots are emblazoned with enchanting designs of some of Slovenia’s most well known towns and cities. The soft colour palettes complement the artwork but work equally well with the striking black and white designs

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'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!

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!

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.

Mateja Premrl

Rucksacks need to be practical but that's not to say they can't be stylish too and these designs from Mateja Premrl tick both boxes. The bags use a clever mix of contemporary designs and traditional Slovenian technique of cross stitch embroidery to produce these super stylish fashion accessories, all of which is handmade right here in Slovenia.
