Abstract: Interest in national values increases with interest in culture, diversity, national identity. The handcrafted Moldovan towel (romanian – ”prosop”) is part of the national heritage of the Republic of Moldova. He belongs to the group of ceremonial textiles and represents a symbol of national culture. A special significance has the handcrafted towels, made of vegetable textile fibers. Of great interest are the laces (horboțică) with which their terminations are decorated. Towels decorated on two sides, on 3 and 4 sides, are identified. Depending on the occasion, they vary according to the complexity and type of ornamental elements used, but also their width. For example, towels given by young married people to godparents have ornaments reproduced in lace such as peacock, turkey, cuckoo, complex floral ensembles, with a width of 30-40 cm.
