Visit to Púchov

Eva Ševčíková

Visit to PúchovMartin Trnka (1969), the youngest of the three sons of master blue dyer Stanislav Trnka, lives and works in Púchov where he has a small business in wood and metal processing. After his father had died (2010), he started looking for possibilities of reconstructing his workshop. Step by step, he managed to settle the legal issues connected with the workshop grounds, purchased the neighbouring premises where the workshop can be further extended and rescued almost all the original equipment and workshop machinery. At present, an extensive refurbishment of the workshop and its equipment is going on, with the aim to revive the production of the original Púchov blue print. In addition, he is planning to open a museum in one of the objects which would document the history of blue print production and clothing in the Púchov valley.
