Leon Kromski began a turning business in 1918, operating until 1939 when the impact of WWII and Communism made it impossible to continue. His son, also named Leon, having mastered turning from his father, resurrected the craft and the business in 1960’s by producing the first of a line of spinning wheels.
Today the family business is continued by Leon’ sons : Wojciech Kromski – the engineer for wood technology; and Daniel Kromski – the artist and designer of the current line of Kromski products. Their principle products are spinning wheels and in 2001 they developed and produced a very popular rigid heddle loom, the Kromski Harp. This was followed by an improved version the Harp Forte which has become a best seller.
At Wentworth we have the range of products set up for trying out. We have dealt in Kromski equipment since early 2000 being the first to import them into the UK. Therefore, we can give sound advice on deciding if an item will meet your needs. Give us a call if you would like to get expert advice.
We dont expect customers to make on the spot buys with items like spinning wheels. Its much prefered for customers to go away and give it some thought. Often a spinning wheel is a one in lifetime purchase so has to be right.
