Guntars and Evija Andersons travelled from the Sigulda region to open their small craft store in Riga in 2003 - and their creations have been a hit ever since.
The name Koka Varde means 'wooden frog' - so called because it was one of the first items that they made. Now they also stock woodcarvings from craftsmen across the Baltic region, Europe and Scandinavia.
Among the wooden curiosities are also other gift and souvenir ideas, including musical instruments, linen, and decorative household goods.
