Stapar rugs – a brand of Vojvodina

In the premises of the grammar school \'Jovan Jovanovic Zmaj\' in Odzaci, a local crafts associaion „Lenka“ in collaboration with Ethno Network, opened the exhibition \' Stapar rugs – a brand of Vojvodina\' to mark completion of the project called \'Preservation and revitalization of Stapar rug-making\' that was supported by the Provincial Secretariat for Culture and Public Information.

Opening of the exhibition was attended by Mr. Zeljko Dvozak, Assistant of the Provincial Secretariat for Economy, Employment and Gender Equality and selected partners and friends of the association \'Lenka\'. The exhibition presents pieces with motifs from Stapar rugs that can be a great business gift or a souvenir from Serbia. The event was deliberately located in the school aiming to get children and youth interested in tradition and workshops offered by „Lenka“ for this target group.

After the opening ceremony, a workshop was held in \'Lenka\' premises with representatives of craft associations from Odzaci and Sombor on the topic of the next steps in the preservation of traditional knowledge and plans for the establishment of a cooperative for the protection of Stapar rug making.
