A few words about us

The Hungarian embroidery crafts (clothing, doilies, runners, tablecloths, pillowcases, laces and many more) have their old traditions and continue to develop in the present days.
FolkArtHungary's store offers you a wide variety of these folk handicrafts.


Different regions of Hungary have different tradition of creating this art. On our site we represent mainly Matyo and Kalocsa art.

The town of Mezökövesd is on the edge of the Hungarian Great Plains. The center of Matyo country, it is famous for its embroidery. The Matyo-style, characterized by a profusion of patterns and colors, flourished at the end of the 19th century.

Another favorite embroidery center is Kalocsa in the Great Plain region. Originally the old Kalocsa embroidery was white, with open-work. The colored Kalocsa embroidery of today first appeared after the turn of the century.

Important! The below notes apply to ALL our products:

- All products of are hand-made (embroidery, crocheting, fringes etc.), and they were made by Hungarian craftsmen, mainly in Mezökövesd and Kalocsa.

- The base fabric of nearly all embroideries is a mix of polyester and cotton, so it's easy to handle.
We recommend that you separately hand-wash these embroideries (no washing machine if possible) with chlorine-free detergent in lukewarm water. You can also use starch to give strength to the materials. No other special handling is required.

- All products are NEW, none of them is used in any way.
