PLEASE NOTE: Each pre-ordered Branik will vary due to the pieces being cut from natural stone and variations in veining and texture.
Braniks are made out of carefully selected marble, onyx and quartizite. The stones themselves come from all over the world, but Braniks are designed by Agata Knorowska and made in her Warsaw atelier. The pattern and texture of each Branik is entirely unique and varies from piece to piece, depending on the block of stone it was carved from, resulting in individual creations perfect in their imperfection (cavities, discoloration or delicate cracks may occur).
The pleasant rhythm of the delicate curves of the edges makes Branik an attractive base for displaying cups, teapots, vases, candles, jewelry, porcelain or other interior trinkets. You can also serve food on it, the impragnation used is harmless in contact with food.

wipe with a slightly damp cloth without detergents and wipe wet stains immediately
acid-containing products (such as citrus, alcohol, coffee, tomato sauce or sodas) should not be left for any length of time on any stone surface as it may leave indentations
