HANDCRAFTS IN VALENCIA

Many municipalities in the province of Valencia contribute to the special history and handcrafts culture that they all share, with Valencia having its own handcrafted products too. 

FANS

In the centre of Aldaia there is a fan museum (Museo del Abanico), and the town is considered to be the birth place of the fan, since 25 out of the 37 fan craftsmen exisiting are located there. For the making of these fans paint, fabric, and even jewels are used, giving them a great value. Visitors will find handcrafted products by artisans from Aldaia, with a great variety of styles and models for all tastes from the most traditional ones to those representing famous artists' paintings.

SOCARRATS

Socarrat is a kind of decorative tile made of boiled mud. Generally, it is decorated in reddish, brownish or other dark shades. This kind of handcrafts comes from the Middle Ages and it was used to cover the gaps between the beams on the ceiling inside the old buildings, since it was the cheapest option. This type of decoration can be seen in other town such as Benetúser, Manises and Paterna. In this last mentioned town we can even visit an exclusive section of socarrats at Museo de Cerámica de Paterna.
