Master Helena is one of the leading basket makers working with cattail in Poland. She has been doing this professionally practically all her life. She cuts and prepares the material herself and then weaves, using wooden moulds. During our research trips, we called her “The Queen of Cattail” – her artisanship totally earned her that name!

,,Serfenta is an exceptional project integrating generations, combining local patriotism, respect and creative attitude towards crafts, and the ideas of sustainable consumption and slow fashion.,,
