The needles are an indispensable tool if you want to use the sewing method in straw weaving. This technique is used, among others, to make bread proofing baskets or herb baskets. With this needle, you will be able to work with straw on your own and experiment with it if you have already become acquainted with this material. If you haven’t – buy our DIY set and learn straw weaving!
These unique needles are a result of our cooperation with traditional basketry masters. They used homemade tools to facilitate their work. They revealed their secrets to us and by combining the experience of several masters and adding some final touches, we created these needles. They are forged manually out of stainless steel in a small workshop in Cieszyn. Their unique appeal lies in their simplicity.
The needles 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 the artisan who manufactures them.

Basketry Masters Jadwiga and Krzysztof Ciemieniewicz, always with smiles on their faces, weave using rye straw and the looping technique. Jadwiga, along with her family, cuts and cleans the straw manually. We have created special basketry needles based on the tools used by her.
