Slovenia has at least one more type of premium stuffed and dry-cured stomachs. These are stuffed and dried stomachs from the Upper Savinja Valley
. The secret to the production is in the drying process, which the sub-Alpine climate and the special microclimate of the place where the end products dry. The Upper Savinja Valley stomach has a protected geographical indication.
In the town of Celje
, the centre of the Lower Savinja Valley, tourists can choose from a wide array of souvenirs which are replicas of museum items
associated with the Counts of Celeia. Among them are products of modern design – both functional and decorative items – inspired by the town's rich historical heritage. A collection of such products was designed by Oskar Kogoj, and the products can be purchased in the gallery in Celje which was named after this famous designer.
In recent years the production of functional and decorative felt products
underwent considerable growth in the Upper Savinja Valley. The material used comes from the indigenous Jezersko-Solčava sheep breed. This craft is centred in Solčava
, and it involves a number of craftswomen from the wider area of the Upper Savinja Valley.
