One of the rare traditional crafts still preserved in Prekmurje with long-lasting tradition in Lipovci is knitting straw products. This handicraft skill has been preserved in Lipovci for 50 years and three families have still been performing it. They have been knitting rye straw by using wheat ears just for decoration. The procedure of preparing the straw for knitting is very important. First the unripe rye is being cut, dryed and cleaned. Before knitting the straw has to be moistened so that it is easier bent.
Tipical straw products are doužnjek (chandelier), vases, baskets and other decorative and appliable products.
