Zmijanje Embroidery


Language: Bosnian subtitles Eng

"Zmijanje embroidery is a specific technique practised by the women of Zmijanje villages in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Traditionally, Zmijanje embroidery is used to decorate female costumes and household items, including wedding dresses, scarves, garments and bed linen. A deep blue thread is used to embroider improvised rich, geometrical designs; the variations of the embroidered designs determine the social status of the village women. Embroidery is usually done among groups of women, who engage in needlework while singing and chatting."
