About RibaAlenka

On Etsy since 2017

Everything started 15 years ago when me and my sons visited island Vis on Croatias sesaside. We go there every year to spend our electricity free summer holidays - which drives you to spend all of extra time for cretivity.
There was a lighthouse keeper that was making all these small wooden fish that everyone on that island wore as necklaces. I wanted to buy one, so it would keep me reminded of those summer days all year around. The man didn’t want to sell one to me, so I left to the beach, all sad, thinking about that little fish. I took a pocket knife and made myself a wooden fish. I said to my self - I can do this!
Years later I got a gift from a frind who lives in that island - a fish from the lighthouse keeper. I wear & cherish it every day.

From that day I started making fish necklaces. Four years ago I started making fish shaped wood decor, trivets, key chains and little hearts out of Slovenian wood.

A local carpenter was so kind and started helping me, teaching me about wood, and letting me use his machines.
And when he asked under what name he should save my number in his phone I said Alenka - and he said - ‘oh Riba Alenka’ (riba means fish in Slovenian). And thats how my brand RibaAlenka was born.

Fish is a simbol for wealth, good fortune and freedom, that’s why I believe that a ( wooden ) fish can make you a wish come true. A Fish - Wish :)
