About the event
Folk costumes are at the very heart of Slovak culture and identity. The precious heirloom of our ancestors has gone on to enchant the world at large! Slovak pride in their traditional folk wear is certainly justified! The beauty of the Slovak kroj is truly breathtaking. Sophisticated, unique, and diverse, the Slovak kroj has evolved for centuries. It is the reservoir of folk wisdom, customs, and history. Handmade, the destinies of their wearers and creators are woven into the stunning embroidery. Join Dr Jana Kucbelova, author of the most popular book dedicated to the beauty of the Slovak kroj, to explore this precious part of our cultural legacy.
