Carpenter's trade


An old and important skill is the carpenter's trade, that needs not only tools for the wood carving in order to built dwellings and shelters but also technical knowledge of joining, raising and orientation. A settlement known for this kind of occupation is Brusturoasa in Bacau as well as Somanesti village in Gorj. Two typical traditional artistic Romanian trades are also the furrier's trade and the manufacturing of the thick long coat used in the folkloric costume by men. This coat has a very old tradition. In the decoration of these kind of coats prevails the monochromatics, the frequent colour being black.
