Renewable Tradition is the story about my traditional Polish Cracovian costume, which I used to wear during church and national celebrations in my childhood.

Project focuses on the abundance of the colour in the waistcoat, skirt and head piece, heavy decorated with satin embroidery and beaded work inspired by flowers.

The final outcome is a woven shawl created on the hand loom with hand dyed natural, noble yarns- wool and corded silk.

The idea is to create a unique, one-off product, which will last for longer than today’s disposable items.
