Ever since the 18th century, the Gorjuše pipes or “fajfe” have been made in different shapes, sizes and with different embellishment. They were cut out of pear wood, with decorative pieces made out of nacre, silver metal and brass.
From the 20th century on, trading these pipes has been on the downfall and the once widespread activity which brought a considerable amount of money to the farmers living in the mountains is now only a part of history.
