The handicraft collection contains a variety of items that have been used in all phases of the complex process of home textile production. The basic material from which the items in the Collection are made is wood, and if necessary, metal parts were added. Most of the items are home-made, while handicraft products are less represented. The primary criterion in the classification of a collection of handicrafts is the function of the objects.
