    I am in Prague and looking to find traditonal czech textiles, or the country type they used to wear in the villages. I cannot find anything or even a textile store for that matter in prague. I am a textile designer and was hoping to get inspired but I can’t find anything. can anyone help? any ideas? Can I call a curator at a museum? what about the university? there must be something somewhere? what about all the ribbon used in this part of the country?
    help

    You can visit Letohradek Kinskych in Kinskeho zahrada 97 street in Prague. A part of the exhibition is a collection of folk costumes. A list of folk costumes can be found on the official websites of the Czech Republic. You can also try to contact Mrs. Holubova (holubova@eu.cas.cz) from Etymology Institute of Academy of Sciences. Or check www.kroje.cz (unfortunately only in Czech and not in Prague). I hope you’ll find something.
