2. PROFESSIONAL MARIONETTES

Marionettes for film, advertising, theatres, and performers 

Besides aesthetics, the marionettes must be very light and perfectly balanced for their durability, and functionality.

Adam, Tomáš, and Aleš are our technologist designers, who have a degree from Puppet University. They can design any type of marionette or a whole puppet theatre.

2. PORTRAIT MARIONETTES

Marionettes made based on a photo

We design the puppets in a 3D graphic program and print them out afterward. Then comes brushing, compiling, movement testing, sewing, and stringing. 

During the whole time of the manufacture, we keep you posted about the process. We provide photos in each stage, and we make sure you're happy with the production.
