the author of this product?

Jadwiga and Krzysztof

They are a close-knit family duo weaving strawballs. When we visit them, they always find some time for us. They are happy to talk to us about straw and reveal some secrets of the techniques used for making their products. Theirs may be one of the most primeval basket making methods: you can encounter it in the region of Podlasie in Poland. Jadwiga and Krzysztof use a special needle to weave with decorative knots: the needle is made in the workshop in Cieszyn.

,,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.,,
