About celapiu

Sales 5,220
On Etsy since 2009

The name 'celapiu' was a kind of charm or battle cry for me, to gain more courage at the threshold of my adult life as an independent designer.

Designing and creating things has always been my passion - ever since I was a little girl. As a child I would become attracted to all sorts of rubbish (perceived as such by others). I could fiercely fall in love with screws, watch parts, fabric scraps, leftovers from a carpenter’s workshop – and I just spent days making things out of it.

Many years later I graduated from Film & Media, so I was trained to be a film critic, but even though studying film was fun, it didn’t work out for me professionally. Soon after finishing university I decided to take the bull by the horns and follow my true passion. In 2007, after a year spent doing work experience in various London studios, I set up my own accessories label.

Although “celapiu” contains part of my own name, it’s actually a word I invented. Looking back, I think it was a kind of charm or battle cry for me at that time, to gain more courage at the threshold of my own adult life as an independent designer.

I have been working with my sister Maja for many years, but only recently - with the arrival of my little son - we decided to formally join forces. We now run celapiu together from our studio in Kraków, Poland and collaborate with felt artist Irena Biskup from Bielsko-Biała, Poland on our felted animal scarves line.

    Celapiu has been my full time job since I launched the label in 2007, so needless to say my working hours are countless. A year ago however my inner workaholic was tamed by a much more absorbing activity which involves my extremely sweet little boy.
