Every Customer: How long do they take?
Slavek: 40 years
He's kind of right! The artisans who make the eggs have been doing them for multiple decades, some of them shockingly more.

So many people are flooded with memories from their childhood when they see these eggs after so many years. Thousands of wonderful stories about time and traditions shared with grandma making these eggs years ago. Something about taking another crack at it (rimshot!) feels very full circle. Got ideas of your own? Tradition is a wonderous thing, and to pass on the long artisinal folk art is a great way to make memories, the same memories that bring a smile to so many of our customers' faces.

To safely protect the eggs, it's important to pack and store them carefully. First, be sure to make a little nest out of the straw. Then, hold the ribbon behind the egg as you place it in the box. Last, be sure to place them in the nested box diagonally. Store them in a dry place.
