Jakub Sobiepanek - Souvenir From Poland

Since I live in Krakow, which is definitely the Polish capital of tourism, I am constantly exposed to kitschy souvenirs sold all over the town. It always strikes me how ugly everything is and how rarely do you see anything classy in that department. At the recent Ethnodesign fair hosted in Krakow I have spotted something completely different. Souvenir concept by Jakub Sobiepanek - miniature chair, to be self assembled, representing traditional polish folk design (I think from Podhale, but I can't be sure. I'll get back to you with that). I wanted to buy it at the spot, but the idea isn't being produced yet. Looking forward to seeing it in the tourist souvenirs stalls!
