In times when traditional customs are slowly starting to fade away and to be forgotten by the younger generations, in Romania there are still communities of people that keep true to their origins. It’s not easy work, giving up on the comfort that modern technology offers and choose instead time-consuming techniques to bring to life what you want, isn’t it?
But customs are meant to be passed down from generation to generation, so here is a list of traditional crafts and occupations that still run in the families of people in Romanian countryside.
