HALINA ŻWIRSKA "HALNA"
STUDIO OF HANDCRAFTED COUNTRY FOLK ART

"EVERYTHING THAT WAS BORN OUT FROM THE COUNTRY
VILLAGE HUTS IS ETERNALLY PART OF THE NATION'S CULTURE
AND NEVER WILL LOSE ITS VALUE."

Halina Żwirska from Halna's studio of handcrafted country folk art has been producing high quality workmanship dolls made from natural local materials for 25 years. Halina learned her trade from the late Lucyna Michniuk_from Cracow and guarantees the quality of every doll produced in her studio. She is dedicated to helping maintain the social memory and history of Polish regional identities by creating fine dolls wearing authentic folk costumes.

Traditional folk dress in Poland's village culture plays an important role in the regional identity of the people, helping to maintain
a connection to their beloved fatherland and giving the Polish people a sense of pride and dignity. The original clothing is beautifully detailed with lavish embroidery and colorful fabrics, with the best examples preserved in museum collections as priceless national treasures.

Originally, this folk attire was used for utilitarian functions, displaying the aesthetics, magic, and defining the wealth of the individual villager. During the post war era, as the regions became more industrialized, traditional costumes were worn only for special occasions, such as local festivals, weddings, church's events and national holidays.

I invite you to visit my website and find a doll that resembles a photo of your most beloved relative from your family photo album to purchase for yourself and the next generation

Sincerely
Halina Zwirska
