We have been working together since 1998. We are a well-coordinated team – across language and national borders. And yet we approach each quilt as if it were our first.
Designed on Lake Constance, over-sewn on the Drina. How exactly is a Bosna quilt made? We show the work process.
Originally intended as a temporary employment project in a refugee home, it became a textile art workshop that has been working for almost 30 years. Read here how it all started.
After the end of the Bosnian War, when the refugees returned to their homeland, everyone expected that this would now also be the end of the Bosna quilting workshop. But it turned out differently.
Eleven different women sew the Bosna Quilts over in their own handwriting. They draw their lines by hand, with care, love and perseverance.
If you want to learn more about our history and at the same time enjoy more quilts, pictures and texts offline, we recommend the photo books.
Designing quilts, sewing quilts, selling quilts – that is the core business of the Bosna Quilt Workshop. But that's not all. There is a lot more happening behind the scenes. Let’s also briefly mention this here.
