Žiri has long been known for its tradition of shoemaking. According to legend, the first master-shoemaker got a shoe, which became a model for his further designs, at a nearby intermittent lake, which is still today protected by the Žiri water dragon. Local tales of events in Žiri are also linked to other natural features, such as Matjaž's chamber, a neanderthal cave and a natural stone table for giants. Local inspirations are also rooted in lace patterns. Genuine Žiri lacemaking is still preserved today by the 100-year old lacemaking school.
