THE WORLD OF WILD NATURE IN YOUR HANDS.
TO INSPIRE. TO CARE!
Our story of wild and untouched nature reflects in our products – handmade natural soaps of “Eleonorina žajfa“.
Made with love for you and me.
Bringing an unique and gentle feeling of wilderness into your home.
To inspire. To care.
As a forester (Stane) and naturalist, Ph.D. in biomedical sciences (Petra), guides and photographers, we spend much of our time in nature, in the wild forests of Kočevsko or other beautiful and natural parts of Slovenia and world.
Eleonorina žajfa is our story – a product resulting from our professions as well our inspiration for nature and outdoors.
Kočevsko is known for its extensive forests, wild places, virgin forest, and as a landscape – home of large predators –
In the past, a very large part of these forests belonged to Count Auersperg and his wife Eleonora. After her the cave (Eleonora’s cave) on hill Stojna is named, and also our soap hold her name.
Why this soap?
We like the touch of natural and wild.
The idea for the soaps, which were initially Christmas gifts to our family and friends, originates from here. The desire to give away something home-
It is BEAR FRIENDLY!
Some of our soaps holds “BEAR FRIENDLY” label, which was awarded in the framework of LIFE DINALP BEAR project , where they recognize products and service, that encourages nature protection and which production or execution is not harmful to bear or its habitat.
We are proud that our efforts for nature conservation have been recognized in this matter. It is not only confirmation of our efforts but a huge responsibility for the future.
Please let us know your wishes. We are looking forward to hearing from you. And bringing the wild forest to your home. To INSPIRE. TO CARE.
