Traditional Crafts

Sheltered by shady valleys and mountains, the able hands of the people of Maramures gave birth to the art of crafting the bits and pieces of everyday life. Be it household items, decorative objects, tools, they all bear the mark of the Maramures region and its ancestral symbols. From the clay cup and bowl, to the traditional bed throws in the festive room, from the wooden spoon to the imposing wooden gate, they all are the expression of beauty and of the spirituality that characterize the Maramures soul.
