About us

I was born and raised in the Croatian coastal town of Pula. At 21 years of age, I decided to leave my home country because of the difficult economic situation and to move to Austria. It was always my ambition to set up my own business and to bring a flavour of Istria to Austria, celebrating the wonderful natural ingredients found in Istria.

In May 2009 I founded my company Nature Adria and began selling Croatian products. I soon started producing my own soaps following my grandmother’s recipes. Natural cosmetics soon became my passion and I was able to gain lots of experience in direct marketing. Since 2009, I’ve had a stall at the weekly market in St. Johann/Tirol (www.wochenmarkt-stjohann.at) and I also take part in other fairs and markets, such as Hochzeitsmesse Kitzbühel (wedding fair, 2011), Kreativmesse Salzburg (creative fair, 2012), Adventmarkt Stanglwirt (since 2011), Handwerksmarkt Going (handicraft fair, since 2011), Ambiente Messe Frankfurt 2019;

In my workshop on the main square of Kirchberg in Tirol, I can let my creative juices flow and can welcome my customers – locals and tourists alike.

I owe my success to my family and I’m especially grateful to my sister Vesna, who taught me a lot in terms of creativity.
