Story of Plaka
Plaka, the grandmother in Albanian, is an emblematic figure of Albanian society. Simple but elegant, she is traditionally dressed in black and wears a finely embroidered white scarf.
The younger people, whom she welcomes warmly and with comforting words, can always turn to her for wise and precious advice.
She is committed to taking care of her family. She often says “Te keqen nena”, which means “May grandmother take your pain”. In case of illness, Plaka always has a natural remedy to offer. In case of a cold, sore throat or fatigue, she will always prepare caj mali, the mountain tea.
Our classic Plaka box is inspired by this woman. May a cup of mountain tea bring you the soothing you would have from being around her and its warmth envelop you.
