Zeger small from corn leaves

Mrs. Havadi weaves this Zeger from the long leaves of an old maize variety. Just like a shoemaker pulls the shoe on the shoemaker’s last, so too are the upper and lower parts of this Zeger. The carrying cord is twisted from corn leaves. In the Wachau region, this Zeger is called the Wachauer Zeger and has a long tradition. The small Zeger is approx. 20 cm high and has a diameter of about 11 cm.

Use and disposal:

The Zeger are very resilient and can be cleaned with lukewarm water. Then they should be briefly placed in the sun because the UV bleaches the corn leaves again as if by magic. At the end of its life, the Zeger can be composted or burned.
