In 2014 the Zmijanje Embroidery was introduced to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list.

It is famous for its geometrical expression of motifs from nature, but even more for the unicolour of black, later indigo blue. It can be found on the traditional costumes of tribes from Zmijanje, mostly mountain Manjacha, Bosanska Krajina in the north-western Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was preserved for centuries and lives today in its original expression.

@Alexis Qū it’s beautiful! Do both men and women do this embroidery?

Is it worn for every day or for special occasions?

Is there a significance to using black or indigo rather than other colors?

Thanks so much for sharing this with us.
