It’s lovely to see artisanal designs are becoming more ubiquitous and I try to buy from these small market stalls when I can. In this case, two ladies are displaying their handmade wares in the open space of a shopping centre near where I live and I thought I’d post some of their work to help them out.
Ewa Mroczkowska’s clothes and handbags are made from wool or cotton and in some cases with some synthetic materials added to make them more resistent to wear and tear.
