Collection(s)Several artists have worked in this village, such as folklorist Ion Pop Reteganul, who printed the Foişoara magazine, and writer Ion Agârbiceanu, who depicted realistically in novels the harsh rural life - especially in the novel “Archangels”. The Bucium ethnographic exhibition brings attention to these local peculiarities. Bucium was an important trade center for furriers (beautifully decorated coats and vests), carpenters and folk costume manufacturers. Given the needs and possibilities of the locals, the manufacture of certain pieces of clothing and footwear became a specialized trade. Male garb consists of: shirt with large front and back gussets, trousers and vest with an old-fashioned cut, simple vest, white coat, protective woolen footwear and shoes. Female garb consists of: shirt and skirt, front and back apron, tricolor belt, two overlapping singlets and jacket. The head is covered with a scarf. In addition to these, rich ornaments made of gold and silver are also customary. Another feature that is worth noting is the type of singlet worn by the Bucium women, one short and very close to the body and one longer and wider, with side godets, worn on top of the first, both decorated with fine embroidery of black cotton and gold thread. The crafts from this area coincide with crafts from other areas, such as textile processing, but here, thanks to the area’s specific, people had other occupations as well, such as furring and goldsmithing.
