In the same way as the Popular Art album by Rrok Zoizi, this album shows in 158 drawings motifs as used in Albanian folk dress, divided by the way they are made: woven, needle work, knitted and with cords or strings.
Almost all the patterns are presented on a background of millimeter paper, which is exactly the real size.
Unfortunately the figures have no captions as to where it comes from or on what parts the decorations were made. The drawings are made by Ikbal Mustafa.
Some bookshops in Albania still have copies of this album in stock, either in Albanian language or in French or probably also in other languages.
