Bosansko-hercegovačka tradicija inspiracija je mnogim današnjim stvaraocima, ali Kobeiagi Kilims su pojam ‘oživljavanje tradicije’ dovele na impresivan nivo. Gledajući tepihe koje dizajniraju i proizvode, apsolutno možemo doživjeti duh starih bosanskih kuća, ali i iste te tepihe smjestiti u moderni minimalistički kontekst enterijera.

Bosnian and Herzegovina tradition is an inspiration to many artists today, but this brand Kobeiagi Kilims, the term ‘revival of traditions’ brought to an impressive level. Looking  at their carpets that they design and produce, we can absolutely experience the spirit of old Bosnian house, but also to place the same carpets in the context of modern minimalist interior.

Brend Kobeiagi Kilims nastajao je postepeno, krenuvši od inspiracije i želje, preko spoznaje da postoje osobe koje zaista mogu snove pretvoriti u realnost, do današnjih remek dijela koja krase domove velikih štovalaca ručno rađenih, visokokvalitetnih ćilima.

Brand Kobeiagi Kilims grown gradually, starting from the inspiration and desire, through the recognition that there are people who can turn dreams into reality, to the present masterpieces that decorate the homes of great devotees of handmade, high-quality carpets.

Priča o modernom bosanskom ćilimu je počela kada su Slovenka Nina Mršnik, dizajnerica – ilustratorica po struci, i Bosanka Ivana Blaž – arhitekta, nakon putovanja i studiranja širom svijeta shvatile da dijele ljubav prema unikatnim predmetima. Nakon povratka na Balkan Ivana i Nina odlučile su otvoriti novo poglavlje u svojoj karijeri i u samom dizajnu kada je u pitanju ‘oživljavanje’ bh. tradicije.

The story about modern Bosnian carpet began when Slovenian designer-illustrator Nina Mršnik, and Bosnian architect Ivana Blaž, after traveling and studying around the world, realized that they share a love about unique products. After returning to the Balkans Ivana and Nina decided to open a new chapter in their careers and generally in design when it comes to the revival of Bosnian and Herzegovinan tradition.

Dolaskom u Bosnu i Hercegovinu shvatile su da danas nažalost samo rijetki praktikuju tradicionalni, stoljećima star način tkanja ćilima. Tom prilikom u malom gradiću centralne Bosne, su upoznale gđu. Lejlu koja je za malo udruženje vještih bh. dama bila pokretačka snaga i od tada njihova saradnja neprekidno se razvija i savršeno funkcioniše.

Arriving to Bosnia and Herzegovina two young designers understood that today, unfortunately, only a small group of people are practicing traditional, centuries-old method of weaving carpets. On this occasion, in a small town in central Bosnia,they met Ms. Lejla, who was a driving force for the association created by ladies, and since then their cooperation is constantly evolving and works perfectly.

Vuna od koje se proizvode ćilimi domaćeg je porijekla, a cijela proizvodnja od prikupljanja vune do tkanja odvija se u krugu od 20 km u okolini grada Visoko, što čini Kobeiagi proizvode zaista pravim domaćim, bh. produktom. Rok za izradu ćilima je od 7 dana do 2 sedmice, a sam proces obuhvata: prikupljanje vune, predenje, bojenje i na kraju tkanje.

Wool for rugs is produced locally, and the entire production of collection from sheep shaving to kilim weaving takes place within 20 km around the town of Visoko, which makes Kobeiagi products really true home, BH. Product. The time for production of one  carpet is about 7 days to 2 weeks, and the process includes: wool collection, spinning, dyeing and weaving in the end.
