Patschenmachen- the art of making felt slippers
Making felt slippers is a very old craftsmanship. Today, only few people are able to manufacture the traditional overshoes. The handwork requires masterly skills, calm and patience. Felt slippers are handmade and it takes about a day to produce a pair of slippers from felt and thread. Even if the carefully produced felt slippers are very popular, the traditional craft technique is threatened with extinction, as only few people are willing to learn the art of making felt slippers.
Lace-making is an art with a very long tradition. Beautiful ornamental braids are made by using spindle-shaped wooden bobbins and matching thread spools.
