Finding material for creativity that would not cost a penny is quite difficult. The exception is paper straws. For those who have mastered the weaving technique, old booklets, advertising brochures, read newspapers and magazines are used. By itself, the paper is well modeled, amenable to dyeing, and finished products, if necessary, are treated with varnish. All this allows you to make unique stylish things that effectively fit into the interior, while having clearly marked functionality. Self-sufficient dishes, coasters, pots, baskets, candlesticks, caskets and boxes - this is not a complete list of crafts made by folk artists. And let the paper straw is not as durable as a vine or rattan, but the things woven from it look great. Their presence fills the atmosphere with comfort and adds to the atmosphere of solidity.
