INSIDER EXPERIENCE - THE COUNTRYSIDE LIFE OF MATYÓS

Learn Matyó embroidery from lovely old ladies!

Spend an unforgettable day in “Matyo-land”! The small Hungarian village of Tard is a UNESCO world heritage site, home of tradition, folk art, and of the contemporary fashion label called Matyodesign. Forgotten patterns, undervalued local artisans and a seemingly fading culture were brought back to life; revisioned with a vibrant, modern pulse. This program is for those, who prefer original experiences!

 

Why is this program special?

  • Every single piece of Matyodesign's embro-idery is handmade with love! These clothes are unique and trendy, while also giving work to 20-25 local craftsmen.
  • You can be sure that all you eat was grown in the garden. There's no fix menu - dishes are made of seasonal ingredients by the local ladies.
  • The rural tranquility is immersive! You can decide for yourself whether you would like to get involved in local activities or just enjoying the atmosphere.
