Wood is an invaluable resource, but sadly it gets discarded and thrown away far too often. We could simply reuse it and give it another life. At Dendo Longboards we strive for a sustainable usage of natural resources and that is why we decided to save and reuse wasted wood.

Further Information

OUR STORY:

We are Teja and Denis, a young couple from Slovenia.

Teja: “Denis is a passionate surfer. When he is not riding the waves, he quenches his adrenaline thirst with longboarding, the closest compensation to surfing. Because he is very creative, he decided to make his own longboard. Soon, all his friends were impressed and fascinated by his boards. That is how we got our name- our first creations were longboards.

The idea of wooden fashion accessories started in August 2014. A day before a wedding, to which we were invited, a friend called and suggested that he and Denis should make some wooden bow ties, because the ‘dress code’ was bow tie. That was the first time we ever heard of bow ties made out of wood.

So we started making wooden bow ties a day before the wedding. The first pair was due to obvious time constraints somewhat incomplete, compared to our current end-products. Nonetheless, Denis and his friend stood out at the wedding. Their bow ties received a lot of praise and compliments.

Soon after, we started getting orders, which gave us new momentum and confirmed our creativity. Over time, our products evolved and became more complemented. We started making wooden products aimed at women and this is how our business tale began. To further improve and emphasise our uniqueness in our products, we designed a special cardboard box, which gives the products added value and charm.”

Denis: “In one year, Teja and I made lots and lots of wooden accessories for our friends. We got serious in September 2015, when we moved to Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands, for 3 months. Along we brought some of our creations and put them up for sale at a local art and craft market. Because our products were such a hit, we decided to buy the necessary tools, so we could start making our wooden fashion accessories. Nearing the end of 2015 we returned to Slovenia, where we continued our journey. We registered personal supplementary work and began working more seriously.

Our personal contact with our customers helped us come up with the idea of simply changing the straps on our bow ties, instead of the entire product. This way one model could be worn with several colour and pattern combinations by simply changing the strap to match the outfit.”

WOODEN FASHION ACCESSORIES, WHICH YOU CAN CUSTOMISE TO SUIT YOUR TASTE.

Our products are unique, just like every carefully picked piece of wood, from which our products are made, is genuine and authentic. From phase one to the very last phase our products are handcrafted and carefully finished. This way, every item has a special personal touch.

But the decision to buy a wooden bow tie is not one which gets tackled very often. We tried to find a solution on how to make our products more useful and customisable in different colour combinations.

Then we made our first wooden bow tie, which could be adapted to any colour combination or outfit. Cloth straps can be quickly and easily changed, thus creating a new bow tie, which suits our clothing perfectly.

OUR WOOD SELECTION

For crafting we only choose quality wood, which is deemed useless to a local carpenter. This way, a lot of high quality and useful wood does not get thrown away.

Types of wood we use:
- Walnut – the colours of a walnut can vary. From light brown to dark brown, usually with dark stripes. The wood is strong and durable and is considered very valuable.
- Oak – greyish with distinctive grain structure. It is hard, and because of it vividness very appealing.
- Cherry – the colour of the wood is reddish. Moderately hard, strong and easier to work with.
- Birch plywood – we use it to make longboards. Composed of several layers of cross-glued veneers.

OUR GOALS

We have applied to Adrifund, because we both think this is a great opportunity to introduce ourselves to the general public. We are happy and excited to be able to participate in the first Slovenian platform for mass funding, and are expecting this to be a stepping stone for our careers. With the money acquired, we intend to start our own company and buy all the necessary equipment to make our jobs easier and make our products even better.

Our website design is in progress, which will make buying our products easier. Who knows, maybe we will even open our own shop, where our customers will be able to experience our creations first hand.

OUR VOW

Each and every product, which you will receive, may be different than those in the picture, in colour, texture or structure of the wood. Every piece of wood, from which our products are made, is different and unique. We have gained a lot of knowledge and experience working with wood. Nonetheless, this project represents a big challenge for us, and we will do everything in our power to make our deadlines.

The selection of straps is limited. If we by any chance run out of a specific colour, we will do our best to find the best compromise with our customers.

We do not expect any complications with production, but in case anything happens, we ask for your understanding. To all the supporters, we will try and tell you about every step we take with our campaign. We hope you are excited and ready to join our beautiful journey.
