Tools avaWe’ve already published lots of photos of vintage spinning & weaving tools (Vintage wooden spinning and weaving tools, Old Ukrainian spinning and weaving tools. 5,000-year-old loom, etc.), but there’s never enough because every piece is handmade, thus unique and special. This collection of female craft tools (usually, women did the spinning, weaving, embroidering, etc.) is exhibited in Reshetylivka museum, Poltava region of Ukraine. They are wooden, they are hand-produced, and they are worn – remember that they’re at least 100 years old.
