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!
