Traditionally, Chavchavadze Street in Telavi, the same Matsantsara district, was the craftsman's street; From the 19th century until the 1980s, the workshops and artisans operating here sold their products on the street, enlivening the area. Contemporaries still remember Chavchavadze Street, which was turned into an "open-air exhibition", which is the main artery of the district and connects to Cholokashvili Street, which was rehabilitated a few years ago, through the rise of Dabahgebi, formerly leather worker’s street - Dabagi Street. In particular, butchers, carpenters and potters/ceramists predominated. Today, the old houses preserved here are characterized by the construction of sheds.
