Karolina Merska - pajaki maker living in London.


Pajaki (pah-yonk-ee) are traditional Polish chandeliers made from rye straw and paper.

They symbolise health and happiness and date back to the 18th century when they were made in the countryside by women as decorations for their homes.

Pajaki were especially popular at Christmas and Easter and at weddings and christenings. Today the tradition is practised less and less.

Karolina keeps pajaki tradition alive.


Comissions are welcome.
