Master shoemakers were highly praised in the past. Today, however, there is only one master shoemaker with the title "Master - Factum est fabre'' in Slovenia and 14 master shoemakers without the title. The Gašparič family tries to preserve this once highly esteemed domestic craft within the scope of their collection of items used in the shoemaking process.
They are also in possession of another arranged collection, a collection of items for chimney sweeping . They took up the aforementioned activity over one hundred years ago, and it has remained in the family ever since. In 1492, chimney sweeping activities were mentioned for the first time in Austria-Hungary. Under the reign of Maria Theresa, chimney sweeping became mandatory, and even at that time, the rate – the price for a rendered service – was defined. The collection puts on display the chimney sweep's equipment and all accessories necessary for rendering the service.
