Name: Marija B.
Mother tongue: Croatian
Occupation: Solderer
My object: old Croatian costume from Tuzla
My story about it:
This is my grandmother’s costume which my mother gave to me. My mother never wore this costume because she dressed in urban fashion. When I started dancing 15 years ago, my aunt sent me this costume which had been stored away in a trunk. Now, the costume which is more than a hundred years old, lives on over here – far away from Tuzla.
