Product Description

SPECTACULAR, traditional belt from VALPOVO, Slavonija! We were so pleased to find this handicraft in Croatia this year....and it is the very highest quality we've seen, and at the best prices, too! This type of embroidery takes literally HOURS to make! Take a look at the accompanying videos which showcase this amazing technique and the skill that is required!

One of Slavonia’s most important artistic traditions is zlatovez, or gold (and many times, SILVER) embroidery, which gives the garments worn at folk festivals and events throughout the region a bit of the "Midas touch." Originally reserved for royalty and prestigious members of the Church, the craft has been practiced in Slavonija since before the 19th century and involves embroidering clothing with actual gold thread, creating intricate and beautiful costumes. The art takes part of the spotlight each year in Đakovo, at the annual Đakovački Vezovi festival, which celebrates the numerous folk traditions of the region.

 

The ZLATOVEZ (embroidered) portion on velvet is approximately 28.5 inches in length, and there are ribbon ties on either end of approximately 15 inches each.
