DESCRIPTION OF HOUSEHOLD/FARM
I inherited the business from my father-in-law. This craft has had a long tradition in our family.
I started my own business after I was made redundant in my old job. I registered the workshop and started doing the business more seriously.
The production process starts with cutting reeds that grow in swampy areas. Harvesting is done in July or August. Only mature reed is harvested and the maturity can be determined by its yellow color. Reed is classified and transported to the workshop. It is supposed to dry well, cut into smaller or bigger pieces. Before weaving, it is immersed into water to become elastic and not to break.
All products are hand-knit, and I use a chisel, knife, hammer and loom for production.
