3:35 PMMade in Azambuja
We are going to write about the handicraft in Azambuja.
In our region there is an old tradition about tauromachy so a huge part of the handicraft is related to this art. Most of these things are made of leather. Almost all the things that are used by the bullfighters and that are used to prepare horses are examples of what is done with that material.
However, in the past we were very rich in terms of handicraft.
These types of handicraft were an answer to the daily needs of the population.
The wicker baskets were used to take the food to the men working on the fields and to collect the grapes and other fruit during harvest.
The pottery was used in the everyday life of the population, in the kitchen, in the fields, to get water from the fountains and to keep it fresh.
The Tanoaria is an old art that developed along the shores of rivers in
The shops which used to sell most of these objects are now closed because Azambuja is not a touristic place and young people are not much interested in this subject.
Like young people that we are, we don’t know much about this so we had to search for information about it. We based ourselves in the information that was given by old people who have a larger knowledge than us.
