Pinsteps. From Handmade to Mass-Produced: The Transformation of Romanian Outerwear
Places to visit in Huedin. Languages: en

In Romania, especially in rural areas, outerwear has long been a blend of functionality and local tradition. Crafted from natural materials like wool and leather, these pieces were designed to withstand the elements while showcasing regional styles. However, the influx of cheap, mass-produced clothing from countries like China has changed the landscape. At the farmers' market in Huedin, you're more likely to find simple, synthetic jackets than anything handcrafted. The designs cater to rural tastes but lack the quality and cultural significance of traditional attire. The shift represents not just a loss of craftsmanship but also a dilution of local culture and values.
