As also sustainability and quality are always present. Further expanding this heritage with sustainable materials and innovative techniques. Creativity and also striking design. Waga ambition is to deliver new perspectives on natural design.
The idea behind starting the Waga brand is an attempt to revive traditional woodcarving. With products that will serve modern everyday life. But, over the past decades Konjic woodcarving was in decline. Above all, traditional products did not find its place in homes of modern families.

Materials and Finishing
Waga Wood uses locally available wood in Bosnia and Herzegovina to make its products. Made from renewable and responsibly harvested wood. And also environmentally sound sourcing and practices are a Waga commitment. For instance, Waga uses non-toxic glues and finishes in all cutting boards.
As a result, each board is safe for you and your family. In addition, Waga never uses any treated wood, wood stains or varnishes. Certainly wood type availability depends on the amount of wood carved decoration on each model. Hard woods can not be carved by traditional tools due to hardness.
As a final protection of wood surface Waga uses WOCA Worktop Oil. Designed for untreated or previously oiled / sanded wood surfaces. The oil makes the surface highly water and dirt repellent. Oil is applied by brush in two layers.
