Weaving is a talent here!

The people of Metsovo have a long tradition in weaving.
They weave rugs, pillow, bedding, rugs for corridors and long haired hand-made blankets.

The designs are vivid and natural colors are used for the painting of the threads giving bright colors which are long lasting and are not affected from the sunlight or washing.

The motifs are many and the combination of designs makes them stand out.

My photos show old designs from pieces I came across in the Museum of Tositsa.
Today's weaving motives are the same or similar.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
