Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

In the southern Serbian region of Vranje, near Macedonia, women’s folk costume is known for the metallic embroidery called smra that embellishes the short jacket called libada. Those motifs inspire the delicate lace-like openwork on the front of our lightweight pullover sweater. Embroidery adapted from traditional aprons decorates the front, sides, and cuffs, while the collar is outlined with ivory-colored lace.


Available sizes: Small, Medium, Large, XLarge

Artisans in both Belgrade and Blace, Serbia, make our cotton cardigan with allover floral patterns inspired by the embroidered skirts and aprons (called pregace) of Serbian folk costume. It was not uncommon for women in rural villages to wear traditional dress every day as recently as the 1980s.

In the early 1980s, members of the British Peace Corps helped establish a women’s craft collective in Kathmandu, Nepal, with 25 members. Today more than 800 women participate at five workshops throughout the Kathmandu Valley. At the workshops, they pick up materials, drop off finished items, and practice new patterns.

One of Serbia’s most significant craft traditions are kilims, or flat woven rugs, made in the historic southeastern town of Pirot. They were a symbol of Serbian royalty in the early part of the 20th century, and they’re still used frequently at state functions. The geometric designs are so often imitated that they’ve been “trademarked” with a geographical indication, similar to the way that only sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France can truly be called champagne.
