CRAFTSMEN’S WORKSHOPS

ANCIENT KNOW-HOW TRANSFORMED INTO UNIQUE OBJETS D’ART

Alongside agriculture and livestock breeding, woodworking was a widespread activity practised in the Sauris community.

Men mainly performed the carving and the transformation of this material into everyday objects: the most skilled created “dalmine”, footwear similar to clogs and the traditional carnival masks from maple wood.

In the past, also items of clothing and linen were all packaged in the valley.

During the winter, women carded and spun textile fibres (linen, hemp, wool), while weaving was a craftsman’s activity traditionally carried out by men. Today, traditional weaving is still performed in the workshops in Sauris.
