Handicraft in South Tyrol

South Tyrol is a region, where tradition and ancient costumes are still alive. Especially in the remote valleys, ancient craft has been practised until today.

For instance, the remotest Tauferer Ahrntal is famous for lace-making, artists in Gröden have been creating wonderful woodcarving artworks, Hochpustertal is known for felting and in Meran and environs and Vinschgau you can still observe traditional baking art. Since many centuries, South Tyrol has been known for its precious works and still today, young artisans demonstrate their abilities, competing for international awards.

The classical South Tyrolean crafts are woodcarving, lace-making, felting, weaving and the production of wooden baskets.

Nowadays, most of the artistic crafts are only practised for nostalgic reasons. However, some of them are still questioned and not replaceable by machines. For example, lace-making, a traditional craft from Tauferer Ahrntal, has survived over decades. The product is called bobbin lace and decorates most of the chasubles of the South Tyrolean priests, being an inimitable art nationally and internationally.
