Waistcoat made with gold donated to Edith Durham by Berat workmanship

 This is the waistcoat worked in wool, silk, gold, and cotton that was donated to Edith Durham by the people of Berat in 1919 published by the Director of the Albanian National Museum Dorian Koçi.

A miracle of Albanian art craftsmanship. It is exposed at Bankfield Museum in Britain.Today, such waistcoat is not produced in Albania. The oldest artistry has lost but can be retrieved through careful reading of the taps and manuals of this profession.The resurgence of this tradition can give a greater development to tourism and souvenirs in Albania.

Mary Edith Durham was a British traveller, artist and writer who became famous for her anthropological accounts of life in Albania in the early 20th century./Oculus News
