News from KRUG
The newest contribution to the sustainable and slow fashion jewelry brand Little Wonder is a whole bunch of fashionable necklaces. As you might already know the designer Selma Štrkljević Mravak creates all her pieces in the comfort of her home, from where she can focuse on her work and make great designs. When Selma starts working on a new ides she usually starts off by making drawings, testing designs, plays with the colours and shapes and before she knows it something new has come to life. You can read more about the workshop of Little Wonder on our blog.
All Little Wonder statement necklaces, bracelets and earrings are made of natural materials like linen, leather, industrial metals, semiprecious stones and other seemingly incompatible additions. This diverse mixture of different materials and patterns is what truly characterises Little Wonder jewelry, and then of course the fact that all jewelry is hand made by the designer herself with love and great precision. What the brand really stands for is a powerful impression and high unique quality pieces.
But now, let's introduce the newest arrivals in the Krug family from the brand Little Wonder.
THE WILD CHILD NECKLACE
The best-selling piece from the very first Little Wonder collection, Wild Child necklace was inspired by the rebellious punk rock subculture. When the punk subculture emerged, it expressed the youthful rebellion and was characterized by distinctive styles of clothing and adornment. This necklace features leather spikes with galvanized brass and metal components. Awaken your wild side and add an edgy look to your everyday outfit.
THE TRIANGLE NECKLACE
The geometrical triangle necklace is made of the finest gray leather and hand-cut, hand-polished and galvanized brass is designed to highlight your everyday, simple outfit or evening dress. The necklace has no fastening due to internal movable structure.

THE NORMA NECKLACE

THE TULIP NECKLACE
This long and graceful necklace by Little Wonder was inspired by the tulip flower. The shape and the colors of the tulip can only make one smile and go back to memories of walking beside a tulip field, feeling the freshness and brightness of the whole scenery. If you want to get closer to this feeling the Tulip necklace can help you some of the way and the rest of the way your feet will take you.

KRUG has over the past few years been able to establish a real solid store in the heart of Split, Croatia. The 4 designers standing behind Designer Store KRUG are either family or very close friends. They design sustainable fashion with a high focus on fair trade and slow fashion. They also use natural materials where ever they can. It is extremely important to them that they can deliver quality pieces to you and at the same time not doing any more harm to the environment than it has already been exposed to.
We care for the environment and slow fashion is one of our contributions to a more sustainable fashion industry. Do you want to know more about the effect of fast fashion?
The designers solely create limited editions so that they only manufacture to the current demand on the market. They design and manufacture everything by themselves in Split but if they need some extra help they pay their workers well according to the Croatian law.
They had a talk a few years back, decided to get together, not just as friends but also as business partners, since each one of them were bringing something interesting to the table. They decided to open a store with their individual brands, Little Wonder, Chicks on Chic and Dott., but under the common brand name KRUG and how creative this was! The meaning of the word "krug" is circle, the interpretation of it being friends coming together, working together and creating something as a team. Read more about the individual designer.
They have had lots of positive promotion in Croatia but also abroad. Their work can be found at all important fashion events and exhibitions in Croatia, such as Dan D, Zona 45, Artomat and Velesajamkulture. The brand Little Wonder has been featured on the cover of Croatian Grazia and Diva magazines and on the pages of British Vogue, Croatian Elle and Australian Women's Health.
It is now time for a new chapter and exciting opportunities for KRUG and the 4 designers standing behind the brand.
They teamed up with me (Anne Cathrine Lind Ceni, you will hear a lot more from me if you decide to stay tuned), and we have been working on the online store of KRUG for quiet a while now, finally ready to introduce the online store featuring all 4 designers under the same brand name KRUG. I will deliver all content for this platform, while the very talented designers will deliver what they are best at; their wonderful sustainable collections, whether it being jewellery or clothes.
I am so proud to say that I work with these ladies and I am sure that they will keep being as successful as they are now, if not even more.
We hope that you will welcome us into your world and let us share not only our collections with you but also our take on the sustainable fashion world, new trends from the fashion scene and news, that being both in our retail world and our online world.
