Most of these skills are eminently practical in origin, reecting the city’s demand for ceramic tiles, pottery, wrought iron for gates and window bars, rush-bottomed chairs, etc. These objects are still quite common in the city’s streets and houses.
But apart from decorative and purely functional products, Carmona’s craftsmen also produce a wide range of objects destined for religious use. This versatility can be seen in the city’s excellent works of EMBROIDERY, GOLD AND SILVERWORK, JOINERY and giltwood which adorn the pasos in the Easter processions.
Another of the traditional skills to have survived in Carmona, and one particularly associated with the city’s Moorish past, is that of MARQUETRY.
