Linda Spahiu Costume Collection

Linda and her son Luris are perhaps Tirana's most fervent collectors and restorers of traditional Albanian costumes; they sold the family house and moved into a rented apartment to be able to purchase more items. Although they do not have a permanent exhibition space yet, they are happy to show their collection and sell some items to interested visitors. Their top pieces, which include waistcoats, heavy woollen embroidered xhubleta skirts, and delicate tablecloths. Luris speaks English and French. Take a taxi or bus up Rr. Elbasanit to the first roundabout after the Martyr's Cemetery and you'll be met there.

Admission free, donations welcome.
