In efforts to preserve and promote the cultural heritage of Rucava, the "Rucava Traditions Club" has presented the book "Rucava Women's Stories", the second this year. This edition is not only intended for the people of Rucava but also for tradition keepers, offering insights into learning life skills from family, childhood memories, and emotions. The book has officially reached the hands of readers, marked by an opening event on December 2nd.
"Even as the snow blankets the landscape, Rucava is in full bloom! The ladies of Rucava stand as mighty guardians of the living heritage within the cultural space of Rucava. Now, the stories of Rucava's women are here!" joyfully declare the representatives of the Traditions Club.
This follows the publication of their first book in spring, titled "The Heritage of Rucava Gloves." This compilation represents nearly 20 years of work to identify, research, and publish the rich glove heritage of Rucava. The book features a collection of 228 photographs with pairs of Rucava gloves preserved throughout the years, along with Inga Tapiņa's pattern drawings.
It's worth noting that the cultural spaces of Rucava, along with those of Nīca, and Bārta are now part of the Latvian Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
