The house consists of a single room where all the family’s activities were carried out with a relatively modest interior consisting of: bed, straw mattress, sideboard, dowry chest and loom. The house was decked with scarves, towels and pillowcases with traditional geometric or floral designs. In the dowry chest celebration clothes and the girl’s dowry consisting of various exquisitely crafted handmade textile items were stored. Glazed or simple earthenware vessels were displayed on the walls, on shelves and on the sideboard, decorated with floral or wooden ornaments. The costume - influenced over time by mundane concerns, impoverishment and external influences – has a simpl...e black and white color scheme with small gray, beige, blue and sometimes red insertions. There are no notable differences in local folk costume with any such difference being dictated solely by the skill of the craftsman.
