The renaissance of Latvia's ethnographic mittens
September 9, 2009 9:15 PM Subscribe
Knitting colourful and intricate wool mittens is a Latvian tradition. To welcome guests to a NATO summit in Riga in 2006, hundreds of knitters from around the country made 4500 pairs of mittens
. The mittens were photographed individually before they were given away and arranged into galleries
according to the region they came from. No two pairs are the same.
