About the Author:

Bobbie Sumberg is curator of textiles and costume at the Museum of International Folk Art, Santa Fe, New Mexico. The contributors include Jasemin Nazim, Sanja Dimovska, Tatjana Gjogjiovska, Slavica Hristova, Angelina Krsterva, Vladimir Janevski, and Davorin Trpeski.

Review:

"Notable for its high level of ethnographic documentation of . . . production methods, techniques, and contexts. . . . [And] commendable for the curators' insistence on complete ensembles to convey how village women constructed group and individual identity, cultural meaning, and protective magic . . . Summing up: Highly recommended."―Choice, July 2012
