In Hungary in the sunny part of the Tihany peninsula there is a nearly one hundred year old tradition of lavender production.
Perhaps the most famous and most beautiful lavender store in Hungary, the Lavender Mansion, is here.
The birth of the lavender shop was motivated by the intention, Éva, the shop’s owner told us, that this treasure of Tihany become as popular as possible, lavender is an herb with excellent effects, and its blossoms are an eye-pleasing sight, that is the conveyer of a kind of awareness of life.
Instead of the common Chinese merchandise, distinctly unique artisan products are offered, and there is a personal relationship with each artisan and artist-craftsman.
At the door we are greeted by cute lavender dolls.
There are notebooks, booklets with lavender pattern designs lined up in one of the closets.
Little sacks, embroideries with lavender pattern designs.
There is a French Shabby Shic atmosphere in the shop.
Beautiful artisan ceramic pottery with lavender pattern design.
There are lavender cosmetics, soaps, vials, candles in a separate closet.
The inevitable fragrant lavender bags.
