About us


Located in a small city of Konjic in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Waga is rooted in the Konjic design tradition, characterized by enduring aesthetics, craftsmanship, sustainability and quality. By expanding this heritage with sustainable materials, innovative techniques, creativity and striking design, our ambition is to deliver new perspectives on natural design.

 

The idea behind starting the Waga brand is an attempt to revive traditional woodcarving with products that will serve modern everyday life. Over the past decades Konjic woodcarving was in decline, traditional products did not find its place in homes of modern families. Waga tableware is a brave idea on how to bring our woodcarving back to homes, but also to present this wonderful tradition to the world.

 

We are a small team of one architect/designer, four craftsmen and one craftswomen. We are committed to making high quality products, impressive design and increasing the popularity of the woodcarving in our community and wider. Our overall goal is to make this tradition sustainable as a source of income for local people and popular worldwide.
