Way back in 2008 Justyna Burzyńska and Maciej Lebiedowicz started sharing their love of PRL-era design and typography on their blog. Interest blossomed and soon they began producing limited edition t-shirts which sold like hot pierogi! The obvious next step was to set up shop. The range of funky goods and items expanded to include badges, belts, bags, scarves and hats aimed primarily at the young and arty hipster set. Well designed, smart and funny, all the products make for great and very affordable presents from some top Łódź designers. The name, “Pan tu nie stał” (“You weren’t standing here, sir”), is a comic reference to a regularly used phrase for queue barging during the martial law period of the early 80's.
