Why locals love it

The “Eesti Käsitöö” stores have stayed true to the idea of Estonian culture being deeply rooted in the soil of the old homesteads and farms. This is also apparent in the “rural and rough” apparel they offer, with different items of clothing drawing upon different regional designs.

Why you should visit it

You won't really find one unique item in the Estonian culture that people associate with the country, unlike say, Russia with it's “matrjoshkas” (which incidentally are abundant on the streets of Tallinn). Estonian handicraft is all about wooden spoons, woven mittens and ceramic cups.

Special tip

Eesti Käsitöö means the same as Estonian Handicraft, so don't miss the sign!

Hi Martin. I was in Tallinn last year and bought my wife an amazing pair of felt slippers. The turn up at the toes and have leather soles. They weren't cheap, but my wife simply adores them! She has worn them in the house every day since, and they have worn out. I CANNOT find them on line, but I recognise these shops as being where I bought them from! Can you help? Thanks! Ben
