Pleciuga - Dowry Chest

Last Saturday I attended the Ethnodesign / Etnodizajn festival in Krakow, which I really (really) enjoyed. Most of the teams featured at the fair presented objects inspired by folk culture or made out of sustainable materials. I will feature most of them when I finally have a bit more time to sit down and go through all the photos I made and check out the business cards I brought in a big bag. For now then a truly amazing standing chest by Proteindesign, woven out of used magazines strings. It's based on a dowry chest given to the bride in the traditional Polish villages, so you can order one if you're planning a weeding sometime soon... :)
