The grape is a delicious fruit and with the deeply rooted history. In Romania the grapes have a special place. Like any other country we make wine of course but we also make Most. It’s kinda like mwine but more like a nectar. It’s fabulous for the gut and kids can enjoy a glass.
In ancient time the god of wine Dionisos was a big deal in Romania, almost as much as he was in ancient Greece. We had holy places at Ulpia Traiana (capital of Dacia) where wine was offered for Dionisos… With that in mind, the grape was very important. In fact still today we start Autumn with a festival of wine, we give the first glass back to the soil when we open a bottle and we incorporate the grape design into our paintings and lace making.
In Romanian Point Lace this design is even called the grape. The one above is my personal one. But since the design was popular I made one for the store.
Above golden autumn… Sold out, but get in touch for custom designs.
