Ribrand is a contemporary brand of wooden products which reflects a collaboration between our design studio and Ribnica Handicraft Centre—a Public Institute, whose mission is continuous care for the overall preservation and development of cultural heritage and its integration with modern areas of creation.

The cottage industries that the Valley of Ribnica is best known for are woodenware making and pottery, which boast a tradition of several hundred years. The making of »Ribnica Woodenware« is one of the oldest and at the same time a very unique cottage industry. Ribrand stands as an ambassador for its heritage, yet confidently opens new paths for sustainable products.

Our involvement in the project exceeded our fundamental role as product and identity designers—we also became storytellers and photographers.

 Only My ❤

My name is Milena, and I am always optimistic yet realistic. I like to take a positive approach to life while also being practical. My love for creating things began at a small pottery school in Ribnica. However, since I was short on time, I decided to switch to sewing as a hobby and got my first sewing machine. Although I slowly forgot how to work with clay, the memories still come to me now and then. My passion for sewing has grown, and I work with various fabrics and sewing materials. I took a few courses to learn more, but my curiosity and desire for knowledge drove me to become a self-taught seamstress. As time went by, my hobby turned into a passion, and now it serves as a way to relax and earn some extra income. That’s why I spend my free time creating and sewing unique products that come to my mind.
I created my brand called “Only My❤” where you can find my products.

I have always had a passion for manual crafts. My mother taught me how to knit, and I taught myself to crochet. My father and I often practiced shaping, and I inherited his sense of aesthetics. In 2011 I discovered polymer clays, which I now use to create unique jewelry. I have obtained a certificate from the Chamber of Commerce. I am also available for custom orders for my knits and jewelry. I work on these products in my free time, putting a lot of positive energy and love into design. The magical colors that I use transport me to a completely different world.

BREWWOOD Craft Brewery

As a brewers, we enjoy all the beers and their interesting flavors. But everyone has their favorite styles and flavours in which they really find themselves.

Our current brewing equipment and small batches of beer (100L per batch) give us a greater opportunity to experiment with flavors and different styles of beer. Regardless of the size of the equipment, we strive for quality, ensuring the consistency of beer and constant progress and improvement.

Despite the fact that the market dictates its own pace and trends, we also want to add to the selection those styles of beer that are close to us and we like to enjoy them ourselves.

I have always enjoyed working with wood. Eventually, I began crafting with laser cutting and engraving. After some time, I decided to open my own company, Denles, to share my unique and wonderful wooden creations with people who appreciate them as much as I do.

Crafting wooden vessels is a long-standing tradition in our region. Our vessels made from Swiss pine are particularly beautiful. The remnants left over from production have remarkable benefits for our hearts. They possess positive properties that can help save up to 3,500 heartbeats per night, strengthen mental resilience, and ensure deep and relaxing sleep. Swiss pine, which contains a lot of resin, grows at an altitude of over 2500 meters. Each pillow we make is unique to you, and both the fabric and filling are of high quality. The pillow and filling have zippers for easy maintenance.
