Weaving Atelier

  Metelkova 2      +386 41 885 025     18 Feb 2019

In times past, weaving was an incredibly common domestic craft all across Slovenia, with nearly every household having their own loom, and presumably at least one family member skilled in the technique. However, like all good things it was destined not to last, and the trade peaked towards the end of the 18th century before facing a precipitous decline after the advent of industrial fabric. Nowadays, the odds are most people you know couldn't properly sew a missing button back onto their trousers to save their life, let alone operate a loom.

Keeping this craft alive and well is Mojca Tomšič and her colleague Barbara Lapuh, who bring more than 30 years of experience to the studio found on the ground floor of the Slovene Ethnographic Museum. In addition to providing demonstrations for curious visitors, and even leading individual and group workshops for both children and adults, they produces a wide variety of items that can be purchased - from scarves, hats and shawls to ponchos, purses and backpacks. Prices are incredibly reasonable given the exceptional quality and amount of work that goes into each handmade piece, and it's also possible to place custom orders, which can usually be ready within a couple of days.
