LACE OF SIKIREVCI

 

 

Lace of Sikirevci (Sikirevačka čipka)

The specialty of Sikirevci is the art of making lace - a motif that has been granted the status of a protected intangible cultural property. Franca Rakitic was the first to work in Sikirevci. Her bed cover, a tarpaulin,that  she made in 1928, has been preserved. The Municipality of Sikirevci and the Association 'Sikirevci Motifs' cultivate the art of handmade 'Sun lace motifs' as a traditional skill, one of the most important preserved in an intact form used to decorate folk attire in the area of the Brodska  Posavina. The building of Sikirevci Municipality has a room with exposed specimens of this beautiful lace.
