Our House in Bucharest

25 November 2012
Romania Shop - INSIDE

Our first European Standalone shop opened its doors in November 2012 - image by Erik Zollner

Our first international Standalone  Shop is located in a beautiful house in the centre of Bucharest, in the neighbourhood of people who enjoy arts and culture. This is our first Wild Olive Artisans shop away from Cape Town.

You will ask, why Bucharest? Because it is the hometown of our creative director Marioara de la Tzara.

The 1920’s monument with a French influenced architecture, stands out on its prominent street, in the city that was known once upon a time as “the little Paris”.

In restoring the interior to the period it belonged, Marioara looked at Art Deco, the current that also influences the Wild Olive Artisans aesthetic.

Materials such as Romanian walnut wood and white Ruschita Marble were used and the entire project was conceptualised, designed and custom executed exclusively by Romanian master craftspeople. 

The Wild Olive Artisans Bucharest Standalone opened its doors on the 15-th of November 2012.

Today our shop is established as the only natural perfumery in the city and the destination for exquisite, exotic South African and Romanian luxury lifestyle products. Together with our longstanding collaborators Avoova   and    Cape Cobra Leathercraft we successfully put South Africa on the "meaningful shopping" map of Bucharest.

Our mission remains the same: promoting our South African and Romanian artisans and artists to the world.
