Textile crafts, ceramics, wooden kitchen utensils, pyrography art, jewelry... The handicraft tradition has been preserved to this day, and in souvenir shops can be found, among other objects, pieces that the masters carve with the stones of the area, as well as the centro fabrics, which women weave according to the old tradition inherited between generations. It is impossible to leave the "Stone City" without buying a traditional souvenir. Souvenir shops and local artisans are located in the center and heart of the Old Town, the Gjirokastra bazaar. All these places are full of all types of objects illustrating Gjirokastra, its monuments, and its historic places. In Gjirokaster, shopping is not just about buying things, it’s exploring and "walking with history" where nature, culture, and heritage meet. The decor of the city can be found on handmade rugs and kilims of all sizes, decorative objects, stationery items, etc.
