If you weave at home – or if you wish to start – you can buy a bundle of wonderfully fragrant straw here. It has been cut manually and prepared for weaving by Basketry Master Mikołaj. Rye straw is long and flexible, in a beautiful golden colour. Weaving with straw is sheer pleasure – its smell will take you on a trip down memory lane, straight to your childhood summers spent in the countryside.  

 

Remember: before weaving, you have to pour the straw with water in the shower our outdoors. You don’t need to soak it all - see the video!

The unused material can be dried and moistened again to be used again later. 

You can also buy basketry tools (needles), an apron to wear while weaving, and other materials, such as willow splints or tape.  

Take a look at the DIY kit for straw weaving and try your hand at it!

The bundle is enough to weave a straw basket.
