    Straw Weaving – Heart

    Straw Weaving or Wheat Weaving is a tradition that goes back to a time where the grain was cut by hand. It was believed that the “Spirit of the Harvest” lived within the grain. So each harvest, the people would make little figurines and favours of straw and preserve them throughout the year until next spring. Then the grain would be planted again, so that the spirit was released back into the earth to ensure another harvest.
