OL Manufaktura

About me

The creator of OL Manufaktura,
Szymon Smerek, instead of the lesson

“Be like everyone else” from his family home, took away a different one:

“Learn about everything, but be yourself.”


From a young age, he traveled a lot, absorbing the culture, architecture, and customs of various corners of the world.
And when he returned to his Warmian home, he spent time on manual activities.
If he wasn’t assembling models, he painted the fence, fixed something, or built a shelf.

– Since childhood, I’ve liked wood. Old wood smells of resin, it’s easy to work with, and incredibly durable – he says.
