Dry Fruits and Plants

Ethnobotany is an inexhaustible source not only for most modern botanical branches but also for medicine, ethnology, philology, history, technology, etc.
The preservation of fruits was the responsibility of women since the second century BC. The most primitive method widespread among the peasants preserved to this day was drying the fruit by exposing them to the sun. 

Dry Plants
A long time ago women knew the mysteries of dyeing textiles with vegetable fibers. These are used for the textile for carpets, kilims, embroideries, etc.

The use of natural plants in traditional craftsmanship can be seen nowadays at the Crafts Complex ”Arta Rustică” together with the traditional carpet weaving techniques.
