I am AmE and would say that it is possible, if the Czech sentence would support it. It would not be at all unusual in the US. From: https://dictionary.cambridge.org/grammar/british-grammar/made-from-made-of-made-out-of-made-with

"MADE OUT OF:

We usually use made out of when we talk about something that has been changed or transformed from one thing into another

-- In the 1970s, it was popular to have candle-holders made out of wine bottles.
-- They were living in tents made out of old plastic sheets."

However, as we can no longer add or change translations, it will fall to the new crew to handle those issues.
