Serfenta Association

The Serfenta Association is a non-governmental organization established in 2006 in Cieszyn, dealing with documenting, protecting and developing traditional crafts. It brings together ethnologists, pedagogues, artisanal instructors, craft apprentices and craft masters. A leading institution in the field of basketry studies. It has earned the Polish National Commission for UNESCO’s Certificate of Appreciation and the title of "Ludowy Oscar" (Folk Oscar) for the best research project implemented in 2011 - „Plecionkarskim szlakiem Polski" ("On the basketry trail of Poland").

Serfenta exists so that basketry may live on. Since 2009 it collects, organizes and presents this beautiful handcraft to the world.
