Life on the western plains of Poland can be hard. In 1918, just after WWI, Leon Kromski began turning wood and soon became his town’s spinning wheel fixer. Between the two world wars, prospects were few so in fact Leon did many things to support his family, but turning was something he did well. Before and after WWII, he taught woodturning to his son, also named Leon. Following the second war, life under the communists offered few improvements and the Kromski family struggled as did many to seek success and good fortune. In the ’60s, Leon Kromski, the younger, designed a new spinning wheel that won him recognition throughout Poland. His wheel, a first version of the Mazurka, was selected to be sold in government stores that supported Polish folk arts and crafts. However, because they were operating a family business, not a government operation, the Kromski's were held back. They were not allowed to get too ambitious for fear that their woodworking business would prosper and thus they were limited in the number of wheels they could produce. Hard work and persistence eventually paid off however; with the fall of communism and the rise of a free-market in Poland, the Kromski's are finally able to begin to fulfill their dreams. Today, Leon, with his sons Wojciech and Daniel have their sights set on Poland and beyond. With Wojciech’s background in forestry and wood products, Daniel’s in art and design, this new generation of Polish artisans intends to place their products before people around the world. For today’s spinners and weavers, the Kromski's manufacture attractive-looking and well-engineered products and they stand behind each with a five year warranty covering their craftsmanship. Kromski spinning wheels are affordable and make it easy to learn spinning.
