Ethnic Jewels

An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment

The Ethnology Collection of the Bosniak Institute - Adil Zulfikarpasic Foundation is significant as it shows the lifestyle of the Bosnian elite from the 19th century. They were the influential families that piloted the changes, introduced innovations and embraced the fashion trends in clothing and home furnishings. The author of the exhibition is Lebiba Dzeko, who also wrote the texts for the catalogue.

The exhibition presents extraordinary examples of garments such as dresses, vests, veils, waistcoats, belts, etc., true testimonies of 19th century handicraft production.
