Processing Hemp Fibers – Combing Spinning

Traditional textile artisan Vladimir Andrei from Bârlad, Vaslui County, Romania, demonstrates old methods of manually processing hemp fibers at home: combing hemp fibers by use of heckles, dressing the distaff and spinning hemp the traditional way.
If you haven’t heard his story, you will be surprised to know that this young man does everything manually: knitting, loom weaving, preparation and hand spinning hemp fibers and wool.

  1. See how skinny this dude is, they told him that he can’t have his own beard unless he makes it himself from scratch. You burn a lot of calories that way.

  2. Parcă mi-a încălzit sufletul sa vad ca se mai păstrează obiceiurile astea in Romania

  3. my grandmother has only told me stories about doing this in Bulgaria over 50 years ago. now it's illegal.

  4. I have the best land in Costa Rica for this industry, either for sale, to rent or to develop projects with you, several of these are located in the blue zone of the planet, they have the best water and climate in the world. Here they legalized cane or cbd a few days ago that is why I am offering these services. I also have my neighbors and fellow farmers from other areas interested. In this country you can cultivate all year round regardless of the season, that is something very important that almost I forget.7
