TRADITIONAL BELT-MAKING

Carrying out time: 
Round the year

A belt was the central and essential attribute of the peasant costume. Belts could be broad or narrow, for men and women, children and adults; for holidays and everyday life. Belts also had a protecting function, and that was why the ornament and color were very important. The technique of weaving belts could vary: using planks, closed combs, or weaver's loom. We suggest you to try one of the techniques at our workshops.
