Rukotvorine
Rukotvorine (engl. "Handcrafts") belongs to that exceptional category of European family-owned enterprises that through generations of uncompromising quality and innovation become symbols of a city and its traditions. In the 19th century, our family began to expand on a centuries-old woodcarving technique originating in the small Bosnian town of Konjic. Based on this legacy Rukotvorine has been building heirloom quality hand-carved furniture since 1927. Our grandfather, Adem Nikši? developed this entirely new furniture style, which has come to be known as the „Bosnian Konjic style“. Our grandfather's pieces found their place in the residencies and offices of the Austro-Hungarian rulers and villas of the elite in south central Europe. Today several pieces of our furniture are under state protection as part of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s national cultural heritage. Our products and the woodcarving technique perfected through four generations of carvers were featured in a UNESCO publication on exceptional craftsmanship in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Now, efforts are underway to include Konjic woodcarving technique on the UNESCO intangible cultural heritage list. The family's devotion to quality and uniqueness helped Rukotvorine survive the socialist era. Now, with the tragic events of the 90s behind us, Rukotvorine is again enjoying a renaissance in this family enterprise. Our new products with traditional designs and reproductions of our old ones are again in high demand in Bosnia and internationally, sought after by aficionados of exceptional and authentic craftsmanship, top quality European hardwoods, as well as uncompromising ethical and environmental standards we embrace.
