The vivid mountain farmer and craftsmen village
Craftsmen from Peist used to be very famous for their special skills and craftsmanship. It gave them the respectful nickname of „Peister Meister“ (Masters of Peist). The village had gunsmiths, dyers, accountants, bell solders, „schädler“, tailors, carpenters, cobblers and wagon builders. The following short portraits not only provide an insight into the individual works but also into the life of people who lived in the secluded Grisons village a long time ago.
