The Pomelaj Cooperative brings together people who make a living through local materials and know-how, as well as new opportunities and insights.
Pomelaj is a cooperative that offers employment to disabled and other vulnerable groups from the Prekmurje region. By respecting local traditions and skills, we create new opportunities for employment and the development of rural areas.
The cooperative was created to encourage the development of rural areas and the economic benefits of its members on the basis of their equal participation as well as mutual help and self-help.
The Pomelaj Cooperative also arranged many courses and workshops.
In accordance with the basic purpose of our activities, our help with the development of the local environment, and local partnerships, we strive to help others. In addition to the sale of our own husk and osier products, the cooperative enables other local producers to offer their selection of handicraft products as well. A joint appearance on the market provides synergistic effects to all, making our selection more diverse and therefore more interesting to different target groups of customers.
