Kalocsas famed needlework
11-AUG-2012

Kalocsa's famed needlework

Taken at the Museum of Folk Art. I had hoped to find a lot of this handwork in Kalocsa, but only one place was selling it. I think the best pieces go to Budapest for sale to tourists. I actually found a marvelous Kalocsa tablecloth in Herend, home of the famous porcelain factory, so I guess it goes elsewhere as well.
