The authors of the book researched an interesting and unique 19th-century work of art – Malenija Sukovska's collection of weavings "Fiber Products of Kaunas Province". The book reveals both well-known traditional and modern fabric patterns of the time. This collection has never been researched, next to nothing was known about its author and the exact date of its creation. So before you is the first attempt not only to present the fabric collection to the public, to discuss the weaving technology and artistic forms of expression but also to reveal the circumstances of the creation of this collection.
