See how we decorated BURE BURE studio for Christmas

Finally, felting table was covered in colourful wool leftovers since we never throw them out. By the way, we already think about creating beautiful clothes or carpets from them in the nearest future!

Felted woolen Bure Bure slippers with magical Christmas apples

Christmas is unimaginable without sweet and sour smell of apples. But have you ever wondered how did people enjoy fresh fruit on their Christmas table in the past, when there were no fridges whatsoever? Our Baltic ancestors already had a firmly developed fruit storing process centuries ago. They saved apples in hay, which naturally absorbed humidity, and when the time had come, used fresh fruit in many ways: decorated home, Christmas tree, performed white magic divinations and rituals.It feels that nowadays, when we are surrounded by supermarkets, which offer variety of premade products from almost every corner of the world all-year-round, we gradually loose respect to such an important part of living cycle – food – we had before.
