In the footsteps of traditions and handicrafts

Wandering through the Region of the Eagle Mountains and foothills can easily become a trip into the history of old handicrafts and the life of our great-grandmothers and great-grandfathers. In the mountains, the less fertile part of the region, minor handicrafts were developed and farming was more successful in the foothills. In particular, fabrics were woven, and buttons, baskets and pottery were made in the mountain chalets. The prestige of this region was acquired by the production of glass of local glassworks, whose products were owned by almost every wealthy family throughout the entire monarchy. Bobbin lace also became a highly sought after commodity, which was made by women and girls in perhaps every chalet. The gentle lace motifs adorned the dresses, gloves, hats and brollies of ladies and misses.
