myself lucky because I was born and raised
in a place where crafts were part of
day-to-day life. As a child I spent lots of
time with my parents and grandparents while
they were weaving. I listened to the tales
as I was playing with reeds. When I grew up
they asked me to try to weave the reeds and
I remember when my grandmother wasn't happy
with my weaving. So I tried and tried and
this is how I learned to weave properly.
As a grownup I realised that I inherited a
treasure and now I weave not just for the
income but to take futher the art of
wooving. Besides the traditional baskets I
like to innovate and keep my customers happy.
I love to hold workshops for children and
adults alike, where I teach them the art of
oday reeds are a
little-known plant. In Tonciu, however, this
plant is enjoying great polularity because
weaving provides the locals with an income.
Our baskets are rustic and useful all around
