The Heritage Handicraft Centre was founded to promote local crafts through social entrepreneurship. Three jobs have been created for women with the necessary skill set. The centre makes national costumes, but also provides much needed local garment repair services.

I am the manager of the Heritage Handicraft Centre and a graduate of the Faculty of Light Industry at the Technical University of Moldova. I love to sew, and seeing a finished product makes me happy. During my career I have worked with renowned brands such as Max Mara and Pierre Cardin. While studying the history of national costumes, I began promoting local values and crafts, and making traditional costumes from various different regions. I love what I am doing and plan to start an online embroidery school.
