Inita & Vitauts Straupe
The family enterprise Baltu Rotas was created out of passion for our roots more than 25 years ago. Today, founders Inita and Vitauts Straupe have been joined by more than 20 skilful assistants. From the very first day, our jewellery was made in beautiful Sigulda. As ancient symbols were reforged into modern shapes, a trend arose to pridefully wear them both in everyday life and on holidays. We are proud to be complicit in this. We are glad to see how this trend continues to accelerate. The Baltic tribes’ amazing heritage of archaeological ornaments continues to fascinate and inspire every day. More and more often, we draw ideas for new collections from the untamed nature and inspiring legends of the North. However, the pride and appreciation expressed by the wearers of our jewels is our greatest inspiration.
There are already lots of us, we are different and complementary. We have got skilful master craftsmen, sharp minds, and many pairs of industrious, loving, and caring hands manufacturing jewels which our friendly shop staff will be glad to tell you about. From our hands into yours.
When selecting charity projects, we listen to our heart’s voice. Currently we support the family assistance community "Zvannieki", the association "Cerību spārni", and medical treatment expenses in "ziedot.lv" projects, donating 15 % of the income from our charity collections.
Charity collection TREES
15 % of the income from this collection have been donated to various purposes of charity for more than 10 years. Thus we have helped unlucky children live in a family in ""Zvannieki"" community and handicapped people join in jobs under the care of association "Cerību Spārni".
We believe that you should do that which makes your eyes shine brightly. This is why we have joined in several wonderful synergies with artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, and others who convince and inspire us with their activities.
Participation in the inspiration forum "Female Leader 2021"
This year we were part of the splendid @growth and inspiration forum ""Female Leader 2021"". Our chief designer Inita Straupe created an exclusive original jewel for all the brilliant lecturers: A silver brooch with a Padparadscha sapphire and beach cobbles. This jewel depicts the various roles of a woman and the main priorities of each of them. The photo style and clothes were created in co-operation with fashion designer Iveta Vecmane.
