You could already read about the brand and the founders in a previous HYPE article. The fans are made manually in limited series, by combining screen printed textile, engraved wood and leather.

The designer primarily works with vegetable-tanned leathers, which she often combines with unusual fabrics: modern materials and traditional techniques meet in the products imagined by the designer. Judit Ducsai believes in function-driven creation, as in her case, each and every idea comes from a real need, and a product can only be put into production after the thorough consideration of the same and once the prototype has been perfected and properly tested.
