Jan Zogata

Basketry Master Jan Zogata is the only basket maker in Poland who weaves using spruce roots. He manually carves the beech elements, obtains and prepares the spruce roots, and weaves the baskets. Jan took part in our project entitled “Master of Tradition”. Thanks to that, his apprentices are now able to preserve this unique craft. In cooperation with the local community, we are trying to include the spruce weaving skill on the Polish List of Intangible Cultural Heritage – this basket is absolutely worth it!  


Jan’s baskets are part of our offer thanks to our long-standing friendships formed during Serfenta’s basketry expeditions. This is a Polish product made by a Basketry Master. By purchasing it, you support local Polish craft and Basketry Master Jan directly.
