Chiara - Learning the craft

This year i was belssed to go to Maramures, Romania and meet wonderful people who have open their hearts and homes to show me beautiful old traditions still kept alive in that part of the world. From the age of seven the girls are encouraged to start working on their dowry and are tought the craft of hand making everything that a home needs. Those times are special for passing on the traditions and stories from earlier generations.

In a world where modern values are often imposed on us, such crafts and traditions are important to be hold dear and carefully protected.
