A Journey with the Kongalas.

Like in the most classic of stories after an initial flop the Kongalas retreated inside their shells, pondering on what to do next.
However, a contemplative life is not the stuff Kongalas are made of!
Trying to understand what went wrong the two tiny Kongalas picked up the pieces and started again with newfound determination.
Finding a signboard clearly visible in the vast ocean they decided to try out Etsy.

The two tiny Kongalas opened up their shop, shooting hundred of photos of their products (and discarding an equal amoun of them. As it is known, it is very easy to end up with a murky picture on the seafloor)

Every small creation of the Kongalas is made with passion, and behind each of them you can find a deep love for art and beauty in its every form.

Traveling with the Kongalas you can reach new unknown worlds and glimpse at their marvelous and unique details.

We would be pleased if you would follow us on our journey!

Yours truly,

The Kongalas
