Today is Good Friday but even so, it's MarketFriday, as always, hosted by my dear friend Denise, @dswigle.
After all those spring symbols, it's time to show you something else today. I'm going to take you back in time again to show you how fabric was made once, many years ago, although at some parts of the world this loom is still in use.
This loom is made of wood just as many years ago and this man is doing fabrics using the same techniques as out ancestors. You can see in the back those rugs or also used as tapestry. These were mainly made using sheep wool. That was very common as in mountain regions sheep were very common.
This is a better view of the loom. I wanted to make a video of the man working but that day wasn't my lucky day, he was finishing something else, thus I could not make the video. Maybe next time. The fair is coming soon, I guess in may it's time again for another one.
These rugs were made with that loom. Rugs were not the only item made back then. They were also making blankets, tablecloths, bags, even clothes, especially folk costumes.
And because it's Easter, I found you some eggs as well. This is very unusual for my region, I've never seen such eggs before.
These are hand painted eggs mostly with floral designs and I can see icons painted on wood as well.
