Kate from Konavle’s Authentic Souvenirs

Walking around the Old Town you will be sure to find a lady named Kate Stojanović always in the same place, sitting on the stairs to the Dominican Monastery, dressed head to toe in traditional Konavle dress, selling her handmade embroidery to passing tourists.

Kate’s beautiful pieces of traditional Konavle embroidery attract many tourists, this time from the Far East who were enthralled watching and taking pictures of her make a new unique piece.

Her hardworking hands produce embroidery with indigenous motifs at a time when souvenirs are produced in factories by computers. If you’re looking for a gift or souvenir on your trip made with care then be sure to visit Kate.
