Based in Germany, social enterprise Abury worked closely with the Mihai Eminescu Trust in Romania to harness the traditional skills of the local craftspeople.  Working one-on-one with leather workers and embroiderers who were introduced to Abury by the Trust during a trip to the region, the partnership has produced a range of handmade cushions and stools which showcase the skills and techniques embedded in the community.
