About the Balkan Costume Pages

Croatian woman's folk costume

This area contains examples of costumes in various private collections. It is basically an extension of the now-defunct site showcasing the collection of a single individual, Stefni Agin.

If you have costume pieces and would like to contribute pictures to this site, please feel free to contact us. This is an ad hoc page, not intended to completely cover the wide range of Balkan costume. It just has relatively random representations of pieces from collectors who are willing to share, anonymously or with credit, the wealth of costumes in private hands.

The various links on the left contain little self-contained units with details of some of the complete costumes. Either click or put your mouse over the descriptive text to see the corresponding image. Some pages require clicking, some mouse over - we're still trying to figure out which is more usable. If you have a strong opinion, please feel free to let us know.
