Textiles in Maramures

Maramures   is an area in North East Romania, a valley surrounded by mountains it isnt easily accessible and has maintained traditions which have long since been lost in other areas.

Textiles are characterised by large bright woven patterns.

The area is famous for its wooden churches, many adorned with textiles, inside and out.

Here are some images taken in the region. With special thanks to Pensiune Anca where some of these images were taken (and where we had the most wonderful locally produced food) and   The Village Hotel, Breb where we stayed in the most beautifully renovated house
