What are the symbols?

 
Made in EU – just to be clear that the product comes from the European Union, specifically the Czech Republic. This symbol is here to head off any speculation that our products might be imported.
  Handmade – every product we make is handmade. Our home decorations pass through several departments in our company, from the initial design to making the prototype, knitting or crocheting the product, sewing it together, and of course taking photographs, packing it up and sending it to you.
  Knitted – the technique is chosen for each product based on the initial design. Knitted home furnishings bear the “Knitted” symbol. Sometimes it can be difficult to tell which technique was used for a certain product, but knitted home furnishings feature distinctive patterns you may recognize.
  Crocheted – as mentioned above, crochet is one technique used in handmade products. Crocheted products are firmer and stretch less than knitted products. Crocheted products are marked with the “Crocheted” symbol. You can see the differences between the different techniques in our rugs, for instance.
  100% cotton – cotton is the most common natural material used. Products marked as “100% cotton” must contain at least 98% cotton.lny.
95% cotton – products marked as “95% cotton” contain 95% cotton and 5% elastane (spandex). The elastane gives the material extra stretch, which some of our home decorations need.
100% wool – wool (yarn) comes from animals. The “100% wool” symbol refers to all types of wool. Products made of more than one type of wool (angora, alpaca, mohair) also bear the “100% wool” symbol.
Depending on the type of animal it comes from, wool is divided into:
Sheep’s wool – the most common wool in this part of the world comes from sheep. It boasts a number of excellent properties: it can absorb a great deal of moisture, provides warmth in cold or wet weather, and keeps you cool in hot weather.
Angora – this fiber comes from the Angora rabbit by brushing or shearing. Since Angora wool is extremely fine, it is often mixed with sheep’s wool or cotton for added strength.
Mohair – comes from Angora goats. Mohair has long fibers that tend to shrink. It is known for its sheen. Mohair is often mixed with wool for added strength.
Alpaca – this fiber comes from the South American alpaca, which is similar to the llama. Alpacas are selectively bred to encourage white, brown, black, beige and grey. Alpaca fleece is available in a wide range of fineness.
Cashmere – this fiber comes from cashmere goats. Cashmere is one of the most luxurious and expensive materials there is. It is extremely fine and soft. Cashmere goats are brushed by hand, making the price of cashmere up to ten times as high as sheep’s wool. Cashmere is usually mixed with sheep’s wool.
Silk – probably the most well-known material after wool and cotton. The silkworm wraps itself up in the fibers of its cocoon. One cocoon can hold fiber up to 4 km long. Silk is known for its strength and is used to make luxurious thread due to its natural shine and fineness.
% mix – products made of a combination of wool, cotton and/or synthetic threads are marked “% mix”. You can find out more about the materials used in the product description under the heading “Material”.
2-in-1 – this product can be used in more than one way. For instance, you can sit on a pouf, or you can use it as a side table, coffee table or nightstand. It also works perfectly as a footrest.

100% exclusive – this symbol indicates VIP home furnishings, which you can find under rugs, baskets, cushions, poufs or throws. The exclusivity may be due to the combination of materials, design or color.
