Our Old Polish collection is inspired by royal fabrics from the collections of Polish kings. From tapestries, through carpets, kontusz sashes, chasuble sashes, coats of arms, tapestries to tapestries. Royal collections are located in the most important places on the map of Poland, such as the Wawel Royal Castle, the Royal Castle in Warsaw, National Museums, etc. They refer to historical motifs, and for us they are an inspiration to create fanciful patterns on glass baubles.
The inspiration for the design is a church cover from the 18th century from the collection of the National Museum in Warsaw. Plant ornaments dominated the decoration of clothes, including liturgical vestments.
Round baubles symbolize harmony. The apples that inspired the creation of Christmas balls refer to the heavenly fruit that Adam and Eve were tempted by. The first Christmas balls were made in the 19th century in Germany. The tradition of dressing the Christmas tree goes back to pagan times. In the past, trees were decorated with nuts and apples instead of ornaments.
According to the legend, a poor craftsman who worked in a glassworks could not afford to buy fruit and nuts, so he blew a glass ball himself. In this way, he saved the steelworks from bankruptcy, and its decorations captivated people all over the world. All our baubles are hand-blown craftsmanship through hand-made decoration.
