When a blueprint is commemorated in the city under Urpina, the Starobystričanom in mind first thinks of the Benačovci family. The tradition of making modroplates, as well as other crafts, was also dedicated to this family from father to son. Already Wednesday, August 22, 2018 at 17:00. in the Thurz house he will present a blueprint for the Banskobystričanem renowned ethnologist Oľga Danglová of the Institute of Ethnology SAV.
Our ancestors love love in the past
For the embellishment and decoration of clothing they helped with their own craftsmen and colourists, who painted and suppressed different patterns in the workshops. The ancient Egyptians recognized the substances.
In our country bluetongue is known since the 18th century, with its greatest bloom in the 19th century, when it was used in almost every household.
The beauty of modroplace was also passed on by our old mothers
In the past, bluffing was mainly sought because of the low price. The clothing that was made from it did not have to be washed as often by people as the clothes sewn from the ordinary white cloth. It is these qualities that make it an indispensable equipment for our ancestral households.
The blueprint was used as part of a feminine costume or bed linen and hinges. Families often even had their own favorite patterns, so they usually ordered the fabrics in the same workplace for blueprints.
"Each workshop covers only a certain area through its production. This has greatly contributed to the regional diversity of modroplace and to local excellence, "
emphasizes the impact of individual areas on the final form of modroplate Oľga Danglová.
Nowadays, blue-print is, contrary to the past, rather a sought-after design and art article, for which people are often willing to pay a higher price.
August & # 39; s Stretnuts with the past dominate the blue color

This year we will continue to discover the secrets of the blueprint heritage of our heirs, also in the lecture cycle of the past with the Green Safe. "
