European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development „Leader” measure supports Estonian Handicraft online shop

Lake Võrtsjärv Foundation, whose main goal is regional development around the lake Võrtsjärv rural areas, is the main initiator to support local traditions and the creation of entrepreneurial networks in the region. One of the tasks of the foundation is to encourage local people for nature-friendly economic activities which would support the growth of eco-tourism and the development of traditional branch of production in the region.

From this initiative and support from EU Leader Programme, the online shop was founded by A.N.K.Grupp Ltd. Local craftsmen are expected to offer their quality products which are based on local materials and traditional handicraft skills. Estcraft environment supports craftsmen with the means of IT-knowledge, marketing and shipping.

Just an example of local product – Unique Art Of Fish Skin

. The skins of the various fish species living in our waters have been used in making fish skin pictures. The majority of fish have been caught from the largest inland water body of Estonia – Lake Võrtsjärv.

All the pictures have wooden frames.
