Bosna Quilts

are testimonies of cooperation between women from different worlds. The workshop came into being in 1993 during the Bosnian war, at the Galina refugee hostel in Vorarlberg, Austria. The unique textile creations are designed by Lucia Lienhard-Giesinger in Bregenz and are then hand-sewn by eleven women in Goražde and Sarajevo. After more than 20 years, the Bosna Quilt Werkstatt (Workshop) has found a home in Bregenz: if you want to see Bosna Quilts, there is now a place to do so. But they will still be shown in exhibitions.
