Кратак опис: 

Making of Sjenica-Pešter type of kilim carpets is a skill of producing woolen carpets in one piece, with two equal front sides, either in two colors or multicolored, decorated with stripes across the whole surface. The kilims are made on a vertical loom by entwining vertical warp and horizontal weft. The material used for kilims is wool of an autochthonous breed of sheep named pramenka.

Sjenica-Pešter type of kilim carpets is produced in Southwestern Serbia, in municipalities of Sjenica, Tutin, Prijepolje, Nova Varoš, Priboj and Novi Pazar. Today they are mostly made by Bošnjak women as part of household craft, in villages as well as in small towns and cities. Also, the making of these carpets is included in group activities by associations in form of weaving cooperatives or citizen groups.
