Traditional jewelry in Romenia has deep meanings. And when rural women made her to decorate their clothes, she appears today on modern designers’ pieces such as bags and others. You can choose between the embroidered jewelry designed by Ivana Mihaela, who confirms that she loves to preserve the cultural heritage, or head to Mesteshukar ButiQ, which designs and displays silver jewelry inspired by the country’s history.
This handcrafted little piece marks a spring arrival and is worn by women in Romenia at the beginning of March. It is usually made of silver, but today it takes many shapes and is made from many materials that range from wood and wool to ceramic and plastic made with 3D. “Martisur” can be found in many museum stores and will remind you throughout the year of your trip to Romenia.
In Romenia, design is booming, as Bucharest is the center of innovation. This is due to the many young designers who present works inspired by their country’s culture and heritage and transformed into modern elements. These designs range from cups, textile products, blankets and pillows, which express historical places in Romenia and other ideas.
Romenia has a long history of producing distinguished leather goods. To choose a modern and valuable gift, head to the designer store that is offered in Bucharest Nicoletta Chirica, which combines tradition and modernity in producing luxury leather pieces of bags, women’s shoes and other products that will inevitably delight those who will obtain it.
When you want to find a gift or a souvenir that truly expresses Romenia, ceramics are a great option. In Bucharest, ceramics are collected from all regions of the country, and you can find them in the Romenian gift shops and museums. You can challenge impressive collections at the National Town Museum, but for more modern options there are shops of prominent designers like Elena Kostantin, whose work can also be found in other stores.
Rose leaf jam
This type of jams is considered one of the most delicious Romen cuisine. The rose leaves jam is a mixture of wonderful flavors mixed with romantic taste. You can find it in a limited number of Gourmet Food stores in Bucharest and specialized exhibitions. We recommend that you choose more than one bowl to ensure that you will have one more when you return. One of the most delicious types of other jams, try nuts.
