Bosna Quilt 78/2019, Lucia and Munira, 140×140cm

A Bosna Quilt. Designed by Lucia Lienhard-Giesinger in Bregenz, Austria. And sewn over by Munira Karo, who lives in the city of Goražde in Bosnia. Munira is one of eleven Bosnian women who each set the ornate seams in their own signature style. Lucia is the initiator and artistic director of the Bosna Quilt workshop.

This is how a Bosna Quilt is created – a collaboration between two women from different worlds.

Every Bosna Quilt is unique. But we have a nice selection, in many sizes and colors. You can see and purchase these quilts in the Bosna Quilt workshop in Bregenz. Or you can first browse our online catalog.

Read here how it all started in 1993, in the Galina refugee home in Vorarlberg.
