While at the Powerhouse Museum I also visited the Ties with Tradition exhibition featuring Macedonian Apron designs. The stories behind the aprons were endlessly fascinating.
No surprises here, this one was my favourite.
This apron was woven in 1954 by Spasija Aleksoska for her wedding. It has been worn once. The flowers are made from tiny woollen pompoms.
This Apron was loaned by Dana Atanasovska and was woven by her mother-in-law for her wedding. The loom width was 36.5cm; cotton warp, woollen weft.
