TRADITIONAL SPINNING (SERBIA, RASKA, BALJEVAC)

I captured this traditional scene in a farm, near the village of Baljevac in the district of Raska in Sebia.

During our short discussion, although not speaking a common language, this smiling decent lady tried very hard to explain to me all the steps in the technique of manual spinning.

She used the wool from her few sheep to finally weave, in her hand made loom, many beautiful cloths she showed me.
