Handmade, One of a Kind Kraslice from Moravia
These hand crafted, limited edition eggs are an extraordinary product of a lost art unique to Eastern Europe and Russia. Though eggs are celebrated and decorated throughout the world in many cultures, these varieties originate in the southern Czech region of Moravia. These real hen, goose and ostrich eggs from Moravian farms are blown and sterilized, then, using a variety of traditional techniques and a handful of specialized tools and natural dyes, the eggs are etched, engraved, and painted to create a work of art that stuns and delights!
Traditionally, the eggs are used at Easter when the boys and girls make and exchange eggs. To read more about this rich and fascinating tradition, click here.
