Hello all. I am Aleks, and I'm a teacher and ethnographer. Since my childhood, I've been exposed to the traditional music, songs, dances, costumes and customs of my Serbian heritage and of the whole Balkan region. I've collected folk textiles - mostly but not exclusively costume - since I was a teenager. I decided to share the collection with all interested by starting a blog that highlights different aspects of the quickly fading traditional life of the Balkans, Svilen Konac Blog. I'd like to be able to expand the educational opportunities the blog and other media potentially offer, as well as to offer more publications on these topics. I've written a short guide to the Serbian folk costumes of Northern Dalmatia, and both wrote and illustrated a children's primer (Bukvar) that I would like to publish, with your help. I will soon be offering some Patreon incentives toward that end, and appreciate your patience as I develop this.
