Blanka + handicraft = BlanCraft

My name is Blanka Bakowicz and I am a feltmaker and designer living in Poland. I run my own felting studio, called BlanCraft. Its name is a combination of my name and the word handicraft.

Why did I choose this way of life? I was always a creative person and loved to express myself in various art techniques. For this reason I attended lots of art classes, workshops and handicraft courses. At the beginning it was just a hobby and a nice way to relieve stress and fight with daily routine. But in 2009, I participated in felting classes. I loved this technique! It was just like sculpting, but in wool instead of clay. Especially, I enjoyed the fact that I was able to turn fibers into something entirely new. Since then, I was sure this was what I wanted to do.

Today I make my dream come true, although sometimes I feel like a Don Quixote in a clash with large companies and mass production. What makes me go forward is hope that - from time to time - I help a few little dreams of yours to come true as well.

If you like what I do, I invite you to my artistic store. You can also subscribe to my newsletter with the following link: http://eepurl.com/b-a0mL

I hope we will stay in touch :)

With smiles,
Blanka Bakowicz from BlanCraft

Frequently asked questions
What is the estimated time of delivery?

I ship most orders with first class mail because of its reasonable price and delivery time, which is relatively short. Estimates are as follows:

- countries outside of Europe: 7-20 working days.
- countries in Europe: 4-7 working days.
- Poland: 1-4 working days.

Please, remember that these are only estimates and your delivery time may be slightly different, especially during the busy holiday period or when customs control occurs. If you are worried about your shipment, you can contact me at any time.

On request I can ship your order with courier. It has a guaranteed delivery time but is a few times more expensive. This is why I recommend it for large and wholesale orders.

Can I track my order?

Every order I send has a tracking number. After dispatch, I include it in the order record. If you live in a country where shipment tracking is supported, you will be able to track your order with this number. Unfortunately, carriers in some countries do not offer tracking as a standard option or do not support tracking for shipments from Poland.

Can I clean your products?

Due to its antistatic properties wool does not absorb dirt and dust easily. Therefore it does not have to be cleaned as often as other materials. Many of my products can be dry cleaned or hand washed but some items may need gentler cleaning, e.g. using a damp sponge, vacuum cleaner or compressed air. Please, visit specific product page for detailed instructions. I also enclose these tips with my products upon shipping. This way you can take a quick peek at them anytime.

Is your wool itchy?

I use only superfine merino wool with fibers diameter of 18 microns. This wool is soft and delicate and its touch is completely unlike the touch of grandma’s sweater. Of course, these are my own impressions and your personal feeling may depend on the sensitivity of your skin.

Are your products allergy friendly?

I usually specify composition of my products and most of them consist only of natural materials. To make sure that the use of a specific product is safe for you, please read its description carefully. If you can not determine whether you are allergic to one of my products, you can contact me for more details or purchase something really small of similar composition and try it out. Generally speaking, products made of merino wool have antiallergic properties. It is because of the lanolin which is a natural dust cap and barrier against bacteria and mites.

Can I buy your product in different colors?

Many of my products have built-in color options, so you can choose colors from the color chart. If you do not see it on the product page, then the possibility of making the product in a different color depends on its composition. If the product consists only of colored wool, I can replace one color with another easily. Otherwise, e.g. if it is made of hand dyed wool or unique silk fabric, it may be impossible to obtain similar shades and patterns in a different color palette. Let me know which product you are interested in, and I will tell you what is possible in this specific case.

Could you design something just for me?

Yes, I accept some custom orders, since I really love to explore the tastes of my customers and turn their dreams into reality. Please, let me know your ideas and I will see what I can do for you.

However, you need to know a few things before you decide to place a custom order in my shop. Firstly, as these orders require a lot of commitment and creativity, they are paid upfront. Secondly, because I need to use my materials and spend some time to complete them, they also cannot be refunded. This also means you cannot return the item made specifically for you.

If you accept it and would like me to make something just for you, contact me and we will work with the ideas you have.

Is something changing because of Coronavirus?

I am healthy and working and I hope you are too :) Most of the shipping options are restored for now so it seems we are going back to normal. It was quite a fuss but let's forget about it ;-) If you have any questions, please message me directly.
