Let’s Explore all about textiles – I am ready for new challenges and am active in textiles, their tradition, and innovation. So, expect my best at starting this Blog. Curious about Textiles, their tradition, and innovation. It’s me, live in Novi Sad, Serbia since had started my only job for my eternal working life! As an Ethologist was dealing as a museum curator. Retired, after a long working career as an ethnologist, and museum advisor; I was born in 1950, in Nis, in central Serbia, but age of youth lived at Aleksinac.

Because I was occupied with the traditional way of private and social life, logically chose to study Ethnology. Graduated from the Department of Ethnology, the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade, 1974; From 1975. until 2014, I was lucky to work as curator of the Museum of Vojvodina.
