It all began 30 years ago during a frosty winter in Bieskid Mountains. Two friends stayed in a mountain hostel. Reality that they left behind stayed equally well without them as they stayed without it. At some point they came to a conclusion that since they spent most of the time there they would have make money by doing it.

They started with a ski service. Soon, it turned out that people used to leave their skiing equipment there so as to have a good time in the mountain hostel. They need something more…

During winter time the weather was really frosty up there and everyone needed something to warm up. And so they came up with the idea of knitted bandeaus that they could sell in the service shop. The first set of products was manufactured by means of an old manual machine that they found in their friend’s home.

It was sold out in a flash. Everything that happened afterwards is a history. They gathered experiences, improved their skills, and developed new technologies but always having in mind top quality and the sense of warm that they could provide to their customers.

The STARLING brand has come a very long way, but has a little further to go and follow its founders. 30 years ago we were mainly inspired by nature: snowy mountain forests, freezing cold, warm of fireplace with crackling sounds, and wild animals. We still adhere to this and treat the nature as the main source of inspiration.

The seat of our company is located at the bottom of the mountains close to a place where it all began. We look into the future and upcoming challenges, with some reflections on the past reminding us WHY WE LOVE WHAT WE DO?
