Flowers of Tileagd

Flowers of Tileagd Flowers of Tileagd is the name of the craft project begun in the Roma community in Tileagd, Romania in 2005.

The craft project enables the women of the gypsy village to earn some money that they can call their own. Their bags are made from vintage hemp grown and woven in Romanian homes during the Communist Period. The embroidery is made from donated wool. It provides an opportunity for the women to show that they do have skills and they are then able to make choices in their lives.
