The success story of Hubrig Volkskunst in Zschorlau began in 1969 on a sewing machine converted into a fretsaw. Today, half a century later, the family business is a large and important manufacturer of original wooden figures from the Ore Mountains.
The master shoemaker Heinz Hubrig founded the family tradition with the construction of Christmas pyramids. In 1990 his son Thomas Hubrig took over his father's business and began producing the popular miniatures for all seasons: brightly colored flower children and rabbits for spring, the beetle orchestra and the idyllic countryside for the summer, lantern children for the beginning of autumn, and autumn children for the Harvest time, finally the angels and famous winter children for the cold season, Advent and Christmas.
The figures from Hubrig Volkskunst are unmistakable at first glance, and not just for connoisseurs. They are precisely worked, lovingly hand-painted with bright colors, and appear expressive and lively due to the many details and decorative accessories.
