Rural handicrafts

Over generations handicrafts such as carving, woodturning, felting and weaving have been playing an important role on the farms.

With love and dedication the South Tyrolean farmers practised the arts - especially during winter they used to spend many hours in their workshops and farm parlours, the only warm place in the farmhouse. This tradition slowly fell into oblivion. That is why the “Red Rooster” association started to search for those farmers, who are still today actively engaged in rural handicraft.
