Natural fibres

Wicker, straw, roots, cornhusks and splint are together named as natural fibres. The most common one was wicker, because it grew along the banks of rivers and streams. ÚĽUV products are made from cultivated wicker.

Straw can be used in various ways - for weaving baskets, decorations or creating ornaments from ironed straw stalks.

A single producer makes all ÚĽUV's root products - bowls and baskets. Their value is not only in this fact but also in the fact that it is a unique and rare material.

Cornhusk is the youngest weaving material and its processing predominates in southern Slovakia. The techniques of using thinly and thickly twisted cornhusk allow the creation of various utility products.
