Special Edition: Meet Our Knitters!

The Ladies Behind the Craft And the Craft Without Limits

When starting with Tibako idea, two main questions came up.

 1) What can we make, and 

2) Who will make it. 

Of course, greater struggle came with question number two, but luckily we have found My Creative House, a creative association based in Kikinda (Serbia), focused on domestic and traditional manufacture by supporting localized craftsmanship among women.  

Currently, there are nine women involved with Tibako project and each one of them you will have the opportunity to meet right now! 

 

Gorica Goca Mićić

When it comes to weaving and embroidery, Gorica is a skillful master who learned the trade from her grandmother. Her experience and activity with creative handmade communities goes over decades, such as the first association called Unikat and the second one Sloga, which is still active  and where she acts as a vice president.

 

Marica Basta 

In her retirement days, Marica still continues to knit and  sew, passing her knowledge to her daughter who also knits within the association. The knitting part she learned from her mother, while sewing she perfectioned on her own. (*Not related to Mira Basta).
