Finding people practicing forgotten professions is our passion. Many of these people are older persons. Their craft will pass away with them because their handicraft professions are time-consuming and labour-intensive and therefore, they cannot find young persons willing to continue their work. This group of “old-fashioned professionals” includes, among others, wickerworkers, weavers, laceworkers and potters manufacturing grey ceramics, which is referred to as “siwaki” in Polish. Their work we present in the section: Most beautiful products. We would like to present also their workshop.
