Striped Power - The Świętokrzyski Art Weaving


Cooperative of Folk Craftwork „Świętokrzyskie weaving mill” in Bodzentyn manufactured wares from different kinds of yarn. Wool yarn was used to make kilims, aprons, runners and wall hangings – linen yarn for tablecloths, and cotton yarn – for pillows and tablecloths.

Design of wares, manufactured in the Cooperative, especially of woolen fabrics was constantly enriched. Their own patterns constituted a major part of the Cooperative design. in 1970 an ethnographic camp was organized by „Cepelia”. Its participants provided new motives and decorative patterns through a search made in the country aiming at finding examples of ancient works.
