Ia de Muscel

With such impressive râuri, from which an intricate design springs into what we believe are the ram’s horns’ motif (coarnele berbecului), all in brick red – this ie is a show stopper. Cheițele, theseam bringing the pieces of fabric together,are not hidden – on the contrary, they stand out in the same brick red tone as the embroideries.

The salvaged items were created sometime ranging from fifty years to a century ago. Exact timing is difficult to establish, and it is beyond the scope of our endeavour. However, it is fair to assume that some of the old techniques ceased to be employed several decades ago, for various reasons: vanishing of the skills, introduction of industrially available fabrics such as cotton, etc.
