Abstract:

The principle of making a woven fabric with an ethnic motif according to a costume design from Posavina, Croatia, is described. The specificities and complexities of making these fabrics on weaving looms are described. One way of replicating the patterns of old fabrics as well as the manufacturing problems and technological process are presented. The results led to the conclusion that the possibilities of fabric patterning on looms are numerous, and the replication of some motifs on looms is possible in a shorter time than on hand looms. However, industrial production is still recognisable, and it is impossible to get a characteristic tinge provided by hand weaving. In this sense, the aim of this paper is to investigate and compare the advantages and disadvantages of the industrial production of patterns with ethnic motifs for manufacturing national costumes, which could prove satisfactory when replacing original patterns.
