Interior bloggers get to know old craftsmanship

Managing director Andreas Honer and marketing manager Ines Riener welcomed with great joy the bloggers Holly Becker (decor8), Niki Brantmark (myscandinavionhome), Agata Dimmich (passionshake), Desiree Groenendal (vosgesparis), Mette Jakobsen (monsterscircus) and Igor Josifovic (igorjosif) who landed together in Sibiu in a good mood. Since we already knew the bloggers from their visits to the Domotex fair in Hannover, the mood was relaxed and casual from the beginning. In the following story, Ines Riener tells us about the exciting encounter between the social media world and the craft of rug weaving.

Wool flakes, wolfs, yarn spinning, warp and weft – terms that were previously unknown to our interior bloggers. All this changed.

Handicrafts and Traditions

After moving into our room in the Casa Belvedere in Michelsberg/Hermannstadt we enjoyed a typical, traditional dinner in the Apfelhaus restaurant.

The following morning we started after a walk through the village and with the drive to our manufactory the tension rose. Finally you will learn how a Tisca rug is made.



In addition to a detailed presentation of our collection and an explanation of the numerous possible combinations and measurements by Managing Director Andreas Honer, our visitors also got to know the individual production steps. From wool storage, to mincing and spinning, to weaving and finally remanufacturing. A spectrum that visibly fascinated them. Livestories on Instagram kept the blogger community up to date. When everyone went to the loom and they were allowed to weave their own unique rug, nervousness increased.

They enthusiastically wrapped yarns on the boats, inserted them into the shed and woven their personal piece of rug jewellery. There were no limits to their creativity and so interesting surface structures emerged. The fun didn’t come too short.

Get to know the country, the people and the culture
Our visitors learned interesting facts about Sibiu during the city tour. We organized another exciting excursion to Bran to the Dracula Castle. A must for visitors to Romania. For culinary refreshment the team of the Orangery awaited us in the Bruckental´sche summer residence, a late baroque summer residence. With dreamlike summer weather we stayed with very good food and exchanged ourselves in the discussion.

A big thank you to Holly, Niki, Agata, Desiree, Mette and Igor. They were very varied days.
