Tools and Equipment

The old tools, which we still come across today, seem crude, massive, rustic and esthetically unpleasant when compared to the manufactured products currently sold on the market. Their charm comes from other features: the demonstration of an ancestor’s ingenuity, tools that were characteristic of a trade or a period, a unique item created by craftsmanship and human experience that was still developing.

These tools can be classified in four categories: tools used for textiles, construction, the farm and other purposes (shoemaking, metal work, barrel making).
