Striped Knit Torba
The torba is an important piece in many traditional Croatian costumes. The word “torba” simply means purse or bag, but the prevalence of this particular style of bag, which is typically fashioned with colors unique to each region, gives it functional as well as cultural significance.
The Striped Knit Torba was machine-knit and sewn in a family home workshop with a 45-year tradition of fine knit production in Vinkovci, Slavonia. It has a typical pattern and colors for this area.

Cleaning instructions: As with any artisanal item, the gentler care you give it, the longer it will retain its beauty. If you must clean this article, we suggest spot-cleaning with cold water and drying flat.
