Linen ethnographic museum in Peñaparda
This museum extends over the process of linen production from flax cultivation to the moment skeins are brought to the loom.
By means of pictures, all stages of the process are displayed (land ploughing, sowing, harvest and bundling, softening in the river, hitting, pulling out of the capsule, spinning, carding, winding, etc.), as well as the tools used in all processes.
Later, visitors shall be able to discover already elaborated pieces of linen, such as grain bags, bedfront ornaments with blue nap embroidery typical of the region, bedspreads, shirts, etc., as well as the typical costumes of the village (charro Salamancan costumes, manteo costumes, wedding costumes, etc.) all largely made of linen fabric.
Another element displayed is the well-known square tambourine of El Rebollar, a percussion instrument of Arabic origin usually bound to women and the rich folklore around linen production tasks.
