Photographer's Note

In the course of time, the Romanian peasant has always tried to create an as harmonious as possible environment, in which even the objects for daily use could render his life more enjoyable. Women used to weave cloth of hemp, flax, wool or cotton threads of which they made pieces of clothing for their family members or tissues for household use, such as towels, carpets and wall-carpets. The wall and bed-carpets are traditional for the peasant household where they are used to cover the walls,beds...
The carpets had not only merely utilitarian or decorative functions, but they also had a particular role at weddings and funerals ceremonies.
