There is no simple definition to what is and what is not art when in comes to folklore. In Slovakia today there are both state and private stores that sell you items that many consider folklore art while other consider it kitsch.

Since art is and always will be very personal, many forms of what today is considered folklore art will be presented here, and hopefully some of it will be something that will appeal to every one of you.
