This summer while visiting Poland we had the opportunity to discover many new products at the Polish Folk Art Fair in Krakow. The products I am most excited about are these beautiful hand cut Polish Papercut Wycinanki ! We sell many products featuring prints of this style of Folk Art, but this is the first time we have been able to find someone who still makes the authentic traditional layered paper version. These Wycinanki are so beautiful and unique - we wanted to purchase every single item the artisan had in her booth!
I wish you could see these in products in person, because they truly are works of art! We spent last weekend carefully taking photographs in an attempt to convey just how special these papercut designs are - so be sure to check out the product listings to see all the images. I also included lots of historical information in the description if you're interested in learning more about this unique folk art craft.
Being a Polish American family, I'm always looking for ways to add more of our Polish heritage into our home here in the United States. I cannot wait to frame the Wycinanki we picked out at the festival to add to our decor - and now you can do the same! The papercut designs will also make wonderful gifts for those with Polish ancestry.
I'm so excited to make these traditional Polish Papercut Wycinanki more accessible so that everyone can purchase a small piece of Polish cultural history for their own homes!
