About Peasant Art Craft
THE WORLD IS CHANGING  – How often do we hear that? In an increasingly technologized world, traditional arts and crafts are on the verge of being forgotten. Educating people about the value of an item made by hand is crucial.
“Small scale food producers—peasants, artisanal fisherfolks, pastoralists, hunters, and gatherers—produce 70 percent of all food in the world”, says a recent report published by the U.N. Global Compact. Yet, they make the most ignored social class.

At PeasantArtCraft, we aim to encourage the small scale producers, by taking an active role in the rural community, participating in historic traditions and sharing with the world.

Purpose

Promoting endangered heritage crafts and rural lifestyle.

Mission

We travel to remote villages looking for traditional artisans of Romania who still keep their ancient traditions alive and honor the traditional arts and crafts: loom weaving, wood carving, traditional embroidery, leather crafts.

Result

The outcome of our prolific travels is a series of films, photographs and texts documenting traditional crafts, folk art and rural lifestyle in the Romanian villages at the present times.

Hello Erika,

Thank you for your message. Please check your inbox. Gr. Bianca

I’m looking to buy a piece of the woven cloth I saw on a video of Dragus. My daughter is a weaver and admired and understood the lady in the video and her handiwork.
I’d love to buy a scarf or table topper or some small piece from Dragus for her Christmas present. Would that be possible? I’ll look forward to hearing from you and thank you so much.

Hi,
Where are you located?
I was looking for textile in snagov romania and found your website. But i couldn’t find your address.

Hello,
This is a website promoting Romanian crafts. But if you are interested in buying textiles, you can try visit museum shops in Bucharest. Muzeul Țăranului Român (The Museum Of the Romanian Peasant) has one shop with authentic textiles for sale. Gr. Bianca
