Genowefa and Marian Kostek

Plaiting techniques

Genowefa and Marian Kostek come from a region where wicker has been grown for years. They have their own plantation and use the plants in their work. They have learned plating from their grandparents and parents and have been practising it since the 1980s.  They  draw inspiration from old and contemporary designs. They make shopping baskets, garden baskets, coffers, boxes and trays. They are members of Folk Artists’ Association.

In 2018, plaiting techniques were entered into the List of Intagible Cultural Heritage.
