IT ALL BEGINS WITH SOMEONE LIKE YOU
I am Žiga and I’d like to tell you a story about a man whose dreams turned out to be… a phone case? Perhaps you’ll find yourself in it. 😉
I am in love with nature and technology. A curious combination, eh?
Not that long ago, I was working in IT. You know, sitting behind the screen all day. Maybe you do it too. It was wearisome… I felt like a half-empty balloon. My senses were dull.
Then, the weekend came and Nature with it. I always wandered into her embrace to refill my batteries. There I felt in touch with myself and truly alive. I hope you know the feeling. The smell of the forest, fresh mountain air, buzzing of the bees. Small things that mean so much.
However, long hours at work prevented me from visiting Nature as often as I’d want. That is why, 6 years ago, I began exploring how to connect both of my passions that seemed worlds apart.
CARVING A WAY
I started working with wood. It relaxed me. Carving, sanding, oiling. Do you know the sensation when you run your fingertips over a freshly finished wooden product? I relish in it. It is warm and pleasant. And that is when it hit me.
What’s the thing we touch most often?
I’m sure you’ve guessed the answer. For most of us it’s our phone.
If so, why do we wrap it in cold and often cheap plastic? Why not something that evokes positive emotions each time we touch it?
This was the moment I turned my passion into a small part-time business and started creating wooden phone cases.
