Collection(s)Aiming to reconstruct fragments of the villager's life, the exhibition - although limited, due to the small space where it is set up - accurately captures some aspects of the daily life of the community. The house proper is the most beautiful room out of all the rooms within the homestead which usually have a rather austere decor. The characteristic furniture consists of a daybed made of wood; a bed with a wooden frame, with two headboards, covered by a mattress filled with fresh straw at every harvest; a high or rectangular table with four straight or crossed legs or “feet”; “lodve” - rudimentary chairs without backs; a wooden dowry chest which is usually the most beautiful object within the house, with simple geometric ornamentation, containing a girl’s dowry and also standing testament to her diligence. The room was adorned with different handmade woven fabrics: scarves, towels, tablecloths and pillowcases. The walls were decorated with different shaped and colored plates and bowls and glass painted icons framed by woven towels decorated with the characteristic floral or geometric motifs. Artistically crafted pots and containers hung from the rafters while wares meant for daily use were placed on a sideboard. Weaving was one of the most representative household occupations in the life of a country woman and it was an almost constant concern for young girls and married women, partly due to necessity but also because it was a means of obtaining a good reputation within the community. The loom consisted of: large wooden frame supported on legs, roll, weft beam, warp beam, threads, backrest, spool, spindle and mount.
