Grazyna Dabrowska began her small, family business in 1985 out of her home in Poland. Joined by her husband Grzegorz, she quickly grew her business by shifting focus to one of her biggest passions—cross-stitch. Orchidea was born from the founder’s ample cross-stitch experience, eye for design, and attention to quality.

Today the company offers a robust portfolio of classic stitching products such as cushion kits and tapestry canvas, and a knack for innovation with kits featuring stitchable wood shapes and greeting cards.
