Some say Croatia is a small country with a big caracter. It has many different languages and dialects. This is what FCE is all about!
Get to know Croatian words that can’t be found in any dictionaries or school books. Just like old photos or some good smells can beam you into good memmories, this words can make you feel happy.
We got those words on your everyday shopping bags so you can learn how to say them by wearing them!
It was really fun getting together all the funky words Croats use in everyday life and then putting them onto something you can have by your side every day. You can expect a lot more stuff with this funky words.
Big guideline for us is that we know where it all comes from. Materials are environmentally friendly and made in factory in our neighborhood, watter based colour print is also made in print studio close to us. Bags are sewn together and hand packed in factory that works on fair trade basis and encourages the employment of the disabled and other socially excluded people.
Lets just say, we are proud of our products, hope you feel that too.
FOCUSED ON CREATING AND PRODUCING
PROCESS OF CREATING AND PRODUCING
What to do, what to do… we wanted to make something that is 100% Croatian, we wanted to collaborate with Croatian fair-trade manufacture, we knew we wanted something different than products you see in regular gift shops… so we came up with FCE.
We spent hours picking materials, talking with factory people untill we got this perfect material of natural origin to satisfy even toughest quality demands.
Idea of funky Croatian words came up one day during a coffee time with friends on some nice terrace (which is a normal thing in Croatia). Words that are used in Croatia, that are not in any dictionary or book but we still use them every day. Decision was easy, gather as much words as you can and get them on some products.
Every single bag is made by hand in a social enterprise company that is owned by its employees and/or local community members, a company that is lead by both social and commercial objectives and that is managed commonly and on the democratic principles.
When bag is done and printed, we pack them to triangles and give them sexy thongs which we know you noticed 😉
