About us

Krisztina Faragó

craftsman, basket-maker, professional trainer


I am dealing with basketry and other forms of weaving for 25 years. Besides the traditional wicker, I make different products (toys, decorations, etc.) from other natural plant materials like husks, straw, raffia, rattan core (known as peddig/rattan core). I also teach the trade for 20 years and I give lessons on special courses. I participated in many exhibitions in Hungary and abroad too, and I published three books in the field of basketry and paper decorations.

I won the ‘Pomegranate’ Award in 2000 at the Living Folk Art Exhibition, which is the most prestigious Hungarian Folk Art Festival.


Our family-run company – Míves Portékák Ltd. – has specialized in the production and distribution of “Do-It-Yourself” craft kits. Our range of products has been constantly expanded over the last 10 years and now we are delivering approximately 100 different craft kits for all of the major distributors in Hungary.


Besides the DIY craft kits, we produce and distribute natural crafting materials, handmade decorations and wicker baskets.
