How can I distinguish Esterbijoux leaves from the printed one?
Recognizing an Esterbijoux product, which is entirely made by hand, from a serial printed object is very simple.
Our products have a natural element (a leave, a seed, etc.), within. It will always be different from one another in terms of shape, size and details; this is what makes them unique, inimitable and easily recognizable
Do all Esterbijoux products have a natural base?
Esterbijoux specializes in covering natural elements: leaves, seeds, flowers and shells. Exclusively the seahorse, the starfish and the shamrocks are made through casts.
Every leaf is associated to a symbolic description. What is its origin?
The meaning of trees and plants has always represented in the past, an important factor in the relationship between man and nature. In ancient cultures everything revolved around the natural cycles and its elements, in particular the trees, which have always represented the cycle of life and the possibility of relating the three parts of the cosmos: the subsoil (the roots), the earth ( the trunk) and the sky (the crown). In the Celtic symbology trees have had great importance and a sacred value, as much as to create to the Celtic calendar which brings together about fifteen trees each with its own particularity and original meaning. In particular it was believed that the plant associated with a birth date would give energy and vitality to those born under the protection of its branches.
