In our preservation and reconstruction workshop, we make replicas of traditional costumes, folk costumes and historic uniforms, and work to preserve and renew damaged costumes and traditional textile items. Notable results have been achieved in restoring costumes belonging to Croatian museums and making replicas for permanent exhibitions at ethnographic museums. Numerous folk costumes have been made for Lado, the National Folk Dance Ensemble of Croatia and amateur folk groups. We also make replicas of historical flags, officer uniforms of historical brigades, and costumes for the traditional sword dances moreška and kumpanija. Our Department organizes various educational programmes – lectures on traditional costumes, seminars on using them on stage, summer workshops and programmes where participants learn traditional textile-related skills and how to make and restore costumes.
