Monika Przywara–Strzalka

It all started in the grandfather's workshop. Monika grew up in his establishment, surrounded by the aroma of leather and in the presence of professional tools bathed in the light of an old lamp. This space and this work have always been something magical to her. However, she never though that she would continue this passion herself. Today, two floors above her grandfather's workshop, in her own studio, Monika designs and makes original bags and leather accessories.

Monika Przywara-Strzałka finished journalism and clothing design school. She also gathered experience by participating in fashion contests and by working in an advertising agency. She started creating first clothes' designs. However, this work was not satisfying for her. She kept thinking about her dream - sewing natural leather. Her grandfather who made shoes did not have the time to pass his knowledge and teach her the art of leather craft. Monika was looking for information on this slightly forgotten craft on her own, awkwardly trying to put theory into practice. It was at that moment that the first in many years leather craft school was opened in Poland.

"I get emotional when I use my grandfather's hammer to put my name on a piece of leather. And I feel true passion. As a result, I can create my own things, without haste, patiently and with my own element embedded within them”.

“After journalism studies and clothes' design, I finally fulfilled my biggest dream. I finished the leather craft school and passed the exam. The family tradition lives on - today I design bags with my own brand and I work using my grandfather's tools. I even swear like a shoemaker”.

Thanks to her Przywara-Strzałka brand, Monika does not only make others happy, but she loves what she does. She works on leather, a unique material which requires the right knowledge and techniques and which needs constant care. Properly maintained leather products will serve forever, creating an individual story of its owner. Fascinating, isn't it?
