Exhibition: Headscarves of the Murter island

The exhibition was opened on the April 13th, 2018. Headscarf is a part of a traditional women’s folk costume. During the past times, it was worn for everyday and special occasions, too.

The exhibition was set in a collaboration with the highschool students from Šibenik who actively participated in the data collecting.
