Židinys Hearth Mittens

$4.99

These mittens are made with a geometrical pattern from Antanas’s book of charted knitting patterns. The techniques of most of the projects in this book were included in Anastazija’s book of knitting techniques.

Handwoven fabrics, knitted socks and gloves, natural dyes, handspun yarns, decorative carpets, colorful wall-hangings, lithographs, and paintings: these comprise the legacy of Anatstazija and Antanas Tamošaitis. Sometimes called the matriarch and patriarch of Lithuanian textiles or champions of the cause of Lithuanian folk art, the couple spent their lives studying and reproducing traditional clothing as well as creating contemporary tapestries and paintings.
