Zanat was formally launched as a design brand only in 2015. and it has come a long way since. Zanat’s roots, however, are to be found much earlier in history. It started more than a century ago when Gano the great grandfather of Zanat’s founders, Orhan and Adem Niksic, stumbled upon what once was a primitive hand-carving technique that originated from a small village close to our hometown of Konjic, south of Sarajevo.

Skills were passed from generation to generation only to bring the Konjic woodcarving technique to perfection, but also onto the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list.
