“Weaving with antique looms”

Crafts of textile processing

The craftswoman is a Samogitian, a Lithuanian woman to the depths of her heart, so weaving is a way for her to cherish and preserve her nationality. As this craft dates back thousands of years, the craftswoman says we cannot forget its traditions. She believes that as long as at least one weaver is alive, weaving is impossible to disappear. The craftswoman herself was only interested in weaving at the age of 15.
