Discover pajaki, one of the hottest interior trends in recent years

Polish artist Karolina Merska's richly ornamented, reimagined pajaki mobiles have caught the attention of design shows and interiors magazines across the world. Pajaki literally means "spiders of straw," and using simple materials such as rye straw, dried peas, and paper, women in Poland would create cheerful chandeliers to decorate their homes for festive occasions. In her first book, Karolina shows how to create 15 classic and contemporary hanging decorations with wow factor and celebrates the rich heritage of this age-old folk art. Using colorful cutouts, pom-poms, paper flowers, and natural materials, Karolina explores the craft's inspiring past and shares her passion for keeping the pajaki tradition alive today.
