Kraj priče o lanu / The end of the linen story

Nakon šest nastavaka lanene priče, stigli smo tako i do samog kraja. Dugujem vam još slike gotovog prediva i gotovog tkanja, pa prije nego što krenem u nove teme, evo da podijelim i taj dio priče. Dakle, veliko hvala teti Ivki na srednjoj slici. Ona je dežurni krivac da je sve zapravo počelo, jer je tako nevino priupitala o nabavci sjemena lana, a ja sam - ni ne znajući u što sam se zapravo upustila - nabavila ne kilu dvije, nego deset kilograma sjemena. Ukoliko nekog interesira vidjeti posljednje dvije faze cijelog procesa uživo, slobodno se javite. Garantiram vam super provod!





So.... six stories and blog posts later, we have slowly arrived to the end of the linen story. I owe you some last photos of the fiber before and after the spinning as well as the finished woven piece, so before moving on to the new subjects, here they are. I have to thank the lady in the middle photograpgh since she is the guilty one that the whole linen story ever happend. Teta Ivka was the one innocently asking me whether I could find a flax seed anywhere, and I - not knowing what I was getting into - purchased not a kilogram or two, but ten kg of seed. If any one of you is ever interested to take part in the last two phases of processing, I would be very happy to welcome you in Kalnik. Feel free to contact me. The fun is guaranteed!

Well presented story about linen, and final fabric is beautiful! I must make some pictures of fabric made by grandmother (mixture of linen and cotton).

Excellent information. The weaving is beautiful. I've learned a lot.

ti si, ženo, genijalna!!! ja to ozbiljno mislim. ne samo što prekrasno tkaš, nego i to što si si dala truda i doslovce obnovila jednu tradicijsku vještinu. vjerojatno i sama znaš koliko su danas rijetki ljudi koji još znaju cijeli proces obrade lana. ovo je fantastično! reportažu bi trebala ponuditi odsjeku za etnologiju na filozofskom ili im dati svoj link pa da studenti etnologije vide ono o čemu im samo pričaju!!! idem sad čitati prijašnje postove pa da vidim gdje se i kako do tebe može doći ;-))) veliki ti pozdrav!
