Collection(s)The township of Gârbova was documented in 1291 under the name of Wrbow. Fiber spinning and weaving as well as clothing manufacturing are domestic occupations requiring suitable working tools. Thus, starting from spinning the fibers, which had the dual purpose of stretching and twisting the fibers with spindle and distaff, spinning wheel, and turning them into yarn, then winding them using winders, continuing with weaving them on horizontal looms where fabrics were obtained, the industry ended up providing a wide range of finished products. The rustic interior creates a complex image of household functionality and aesthetics of the traditional village. The bed with straw mattress and cotton bedding with white lace edges over which the thick checkered woolen carpet was placed also holds the beautifully decorated pillows at one end; the older artifacts have few predominant colors - red and black –, while the newer ones have a more colorful, complex and richer design. A special place in the exhibition is reserved for ceramics, represented by predominantly dark green glazed vessels (glazed both inside and out). The main shapes are: simple pitchers of different sizes, “cancee”, cups with two-lobed rims, beer mugs and larger vessels with two handles and a lid.
