The society is permanently influenced by the individual and collective culture, this being correlated with the ethnic diversity and the micro-cultures specific to each one. The upward trend, of acceptance and influence from the micro-cultures that make up the society, determines the reinterpretation of the ethnic roots and their adoption, including in the global directions of design and fashion. 

The handicraft items have gained a greater value, these being raised to the level of art. The originality of the handicraft interwoven with the value is given to the tradition generates a cultural, multiethnic trend, in which the attention given to fabrics with ethnic patterns occupies a central place. The individual experience of each one and the cultural-ethnic identity, are valuable sources of inspiration - for the design of original interior arrangements, with reinterpreted ethnic specificity.
