Historically, geometric crowns have been made primarily from rye straws, but in Estonian coastal areas, Christmas, Easter and wedding crowns were usually made from reed. The use of reed as a material for crowns makes the Estonian tradition of crafting reed crowns unique.
Led by the Estonian Folk Art and Craft Union and Urmas Veersalu, a long-time maker of reed crowns, we will build the world`s largest reed crown at St Martin`s Fair on 7th to 10th November 2019. The current Guinness record in held by Lithuania.
