Handmade with love

Our story

Roboty Ręczne is a family brand created out of love for traditional crafts and ageless design. The brand’s designer is Marta Iwanina-Kochańska, a graduate of the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts and a student of Krakow Academy of Fine Arts and Lahti Design Institute, a trainee at Tom Dixon’s London design studio. Our designs are seasonless – we strive for creating beyond timeframes and passing trends. Each season we present new models, colours, weaves. Additionally, we offer made-to-measure knits by customising existing designs or designing to order from scratch. Please feel welcome to visit our Warsaw atelier at Mozaikowa Street for consultation, taking measure and shopping.

Wool

We never stop looking for yarn that meets our high expectations, some good-quality and long-lasting blends of yarn. We use hypoallergenic alpaca, irreplaceable at any air temperature and humidity. For sensitive skin we recommend Australian merino wool for any time of the year. We knit from camel and yak wool, from cashmere, silk and delicate goat mohair. Summer knits are made of organic cotton and bamboo. Some of our yarn is blended with a tiny addition of synthetics to postpone pilling and stretching. Handmade knits always get slightly bigger. Please remember to wash your knitwear by hand in lukewarm water, never wring or spin-dry, and to dry flat. As wash care we recommend liquid lanoline or shampoo with as little ingredients as possible. Pilling is an inevitable stage of using almost any piece of wool clothing. To slow this process down, please keep the clothes in our special bags and if removing pill, please use only clothes shavers.

Jewels

Our bracelets and necklaces are handmade in Poland and their metal parts are produced in Italy. The highest production quality guarantees the beauty of finishing and their longevity. Each silvery element contains nickel. Metal elements will shine longer if they don’t contact water or perfume.
