DUTCH, GERMANS, ARABS AND SWISSES BUY NEW YEAR DECORATIONS AT TERNOPIL FACTORY
'Irena Ko' company, the New Year toys factory located in Ternopil, produces diverse Christmas decorations: balls with decorations, formed and landscape decorations. The owner Irena Butyter has been already involved in this business for 25 years.
Every New Year toy is born in the workshop where the forms are blown. Glass tubes are melted over a 1000⁰C with gas burner and cut into molds. Then they are molded into required shape. The future toy is undergone through a decorating process where it is silver-plated, fined down or colored. However, the most interesting stage is decorating when skilled artists turn a simple ball into an artwork.
It might be thought that this business is seasonal, in deed, the company works all the year round. In September-October the company finishes the work on orders for the upcoming holiday season and starts its preparation for the next one.
As Mrs.Irena says the company’s customers are mainly from the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany and UAE. In Ukraine these decorations can be found in Ternopil and Lviv.
