Travel Tuesday: Textiles at the Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture, Chicago

On our visit to the Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture in Chicago back on August 8, 2017, we spent a lot of time in the Women's Guild Room, which featured Lithuanian folk arts, including traditional textiles.

Above and below:  Hand-loom-woven sashes (juostos) with traditional Lithuanian designs and patterns, from the private collection of Paulina Vaitaitis, D.D.S. (1920-2004).
