The rise of Enjoy The Wood: From ashes to new life

We are Enjoy The Wood, Ukrainian creators of Wooden World Maps. Since 2014, we have been creating inspiring and meaningful products for people's homes, offices and lives. We had beautiful offices and manufacturing facilities in Irpin, Bucha and Borodyanka, lovely green towns not far from Kyiv. Now that Russia has led a brutal assault on Ukraine for 3 months in a row, all three of these towns as well as many other Ukrainian cities and small villages have been ruined. Infrastructure destroyed. Death and misery descended upon us. Many team members were able to move away and became internally displaced or refugees in other countries. Some stayed behind. Their fate is unknown. 

However, our spirit remains unbroken. We are not gonna give up. From the first days of the war, our founder Igor Fostenko has been leading war relief efforts in Irpin where he and his family of 5 used to live. He bought an armored vehicle and donated it to the city, he also bought armored vests for the defenders and supplies for the residents in need. As a company, we have been fundraising and supporting each other and our families. We have not stopped working for one day.

Enjoy The Wood has just completed another successful Kickstarter campaign, the 7th in our short history, and raised over 160,000 USD to resume production. To ensure that we have a future. To bring jobs back. To support the economy of Ukraine. Thank you to over 1,000 backers who believed in us. We will restart, rebuild and renew everything that has been taken away. Don't doubt that for one moment. Do you know our superpower? We’re Ukrainians! 🇺🇦

We work hard to accomplish our goals, we believe in the strength of our country and our team. And so, despite the raging war in the country, we are launching a new product:

3D World Map Wall Art Ukrainian Edition - Stand with Ukraine, the miracle Map. Like the phoenix, Enjoy The Wood is rising from the ashes, building new offices and manufacturing facilities, and with a new amazing Map to join the stock soon. Imagine that!

The team has been meeting regularly in the new office space in Uzhgorod, Western Ukraine. All equipment has been delivered and production is going full speed ahead.

A portion of all sales we make and hope to make goes to support Ukrainian Armed Forces and the people in the besieged towns.

Support Ukraine and choose Enjoy The Wood!

    We love our map and since we put it up have had two friends order one. I bought one for a grandson on your recent kickstarter campaign and he is anxiously waiting for it. We have been flying the Ukrainian flag in our yard and have had many comments of support for Ukrainian. Keep up the good work and May God bless.
