“Estonia is one of the big knitting centers in the world. Especially the mittens are a cultural-historical heritage. Their patterns have meanings. While it makes no sense to warm hands in the summer months, now is the time to dig into the drawers for some pairs of gloves. Probably people, who have spent their summer vacation in the Baltic States are stocked with mittens and gloves very typical to this region.
Today, knitting is much closer to the people. In Tallinn , you will encounter masses of knitwear, most of them made by machine. On the wool bazaar in the Müürivahe street you can get such gloves made of synthetic yarn from just ten euros. You can find the largest selection of authentic handicrafts at Eesti Käsitöö (Estonian Handicrafts) on 22 Pikk Street, Tallinn, Estonia.
