Traditional wall-carpet craftmanship now part of UNESCO’s heritage list


Traditional wall-carpet craftmanship is officially now part of UNESCO’s heritage list.

Wall carpets were produced in the past in Romania and Moldova with the purpose of insulation but also for decorations. Moreover, they were also a part of a bride’s dowry.

To create these special carpets many techniques were used and carpets had different motifs that indicated the area where they came from. The carpets are now also used as display at international exhibitions. Although it is an old art, people are still creating carpets in some parts of Romania, in special crafts associations and colleges and museums.
