Travelling into the lowlands, follow the Tapestry Route. Visit weaving workshops where raw mohair clipped from goats, is refined by hand — carded and spun. This yarn is dyed, and then woven into tapestries and rugs with colourful patterns or picturesque scenes.
The crafters knit or weave garments — among them shawls, waistcoats and ties. Through this local production, the weavers educate and support their families.
Their displays of handcrafts in the galleries offer a lovely range of useful items. Co-operative industries invite tourists to their galleries. The tapestries are works of art in a kaleidoscope of colours, depicting village life.
