We sail on board a ship-shaped factory building in Prague Radotín and that is where the individual works of art are created. The ringing of the anvil and the heat of the forge will take you back to a time when iron was a precious metal and blacksmiths were as valued as healers and exorcists, a time when honest trade was all that mattered.
We wish to be as close to you as possible, therefore we opened a shop in the centre of Prague, in Rybná Street. Here you can see the craftsmanship of our blacksmiths and the beauty of our products. You can visit our blacksmith’s stand at the Farmers’ markets at náměstí Republiky (Republic square) from spring until autumn.
Each of our stores will unveil the secrets of working with metal and show you the craftsmanship of our blacksmiths.
“When you say metal, people often imagine cold bars or a huge gray gate. That, however, is but a small fraction of what metal can become. In our hands, metal can beautify and put the final touches to your interior, exterior, or garden. Either on its own or in connection to wood or other materials it is far from cold. On the contrary, it is warm, passionate, and irreplaceable for modern design. Inside or outside, our forged products will bring your home to perfection.”
