Traditional Wall-carpet Craftsmanship in Romania and the Republic of Moldova


Language: English
Available in:»English»Romanian

Traditionally, wall carpets produced by weaver communities of Romania and the Republic of Moldova were used for decoration, funerals, exhibitions and as part of a bride's dowry. These days, they are mainly appreciated as works of art. Techniques have changed from vertical/horizontal looms practised in some parts to tight picking and other forms, with weavers now able to work from home. An expression of creativity, identity and tool for social cohesion, it is transmitted by families, craft centres and colleges.
