Helena Rogala

Helena Rogala – Cattail Queen – one of the last remaining basket makers who weaves unique cattail bags for us. We have cooperated with Helena for 11 years. Along with her family, she cuts cattail manually in muddy ponds. Then she cleans the material uses it to weave her magic!  


Take a look at the cutting process!  

Join the only cattail weaving workshop at Serfenta this year!  

Meet Helena Rogala as you stay at home – buy a tutorial DVD and see how the bag is made


Helena’s bags are part of our offer thanks to our long-standing friendships formed during Serfenta’s basketry expeditions. By purchasing them, you support local Polish craft and Basketry Master Helena directly.
