Description
 
This pajak comes from the town of Nieborow, not far from Lowicz.
It is made with tissue paper, straw and features a center of colorful yarn. Some have strings of beads and no two are ever alike. Completely made by hand by our local artist, each takes approximately five days to complete.

Pajaki - The literal translation is "spiders of straw". Located 90 kilometers from Warsaw the town of Lowicz and surrounding villages comprise the center of what many consider to be Poland's most colorful folk region. A typical village house from this area was full of colored flower paintings, fancy paper cut-outs and mobiles made of straw and colored paper. The mobiles or pajaki are delicate creations hand made by the women and girls of the villages as decorations for their homes. The finest examples of this folk art from the 19th and 20th centuries can be found in the local museum located in the town square. As Poland continues on the path to modernize the country the number of folk artists grows smaller. Our selection represents the finest examples of the older generation still practicing their craft. Pajaki are very light and fold down for transport. Although we pack carefully to minimize movement some crushing may occur. Hanging your pajak will open the flowers which can be refolded into place if desired. To minimize fading avoid direct sunlight. Do not hang directly beneath fluorescent or incandescent light. A gentle vacuum with a brush too attached used annually should be sufficient to remove any dust. Do not moisten or use any liquids in cleaning. Our own store pajak centerpiece is brilliant red, has been on display for over 30 years and is still as bright and colorful as ever!
