Among other things, Rastoke witness of the impressive harmony between the nature and human achievements whereby the power of the water was used as the main and only mill drive. This is the first time that primitive machines were not powered by human or animal power. Apart from grinding wheat, the power of the water was used to wash the laundry. Long before the washing machine was invented, laundry in Rastoke was ‘basketed’ (‘košalo’) in baskets beside the mills. Baskets were deep wooden barrels with drilled holes in which water tossed and turned the laundry until it was entirely clean.
