SERTIFIKAT STAROG ZANATA
The last opancar in Novi Sad and surrounding areas that’s keeping this old trade from being forgotten!
Opancarsko-papudzijska store was established on the 2nd of June 2016, the same year it receives the certificate of old trade. It’s located in the center of Novi Sad, in the street of unfortunate reed houses, Kraljevica Marka 48.
Milan Ilin-Mica from Novi Sad has been in the cobbler business for 25 years, from which he decided to use his skill set and interest into making opancis. This idea first came to him from his wife Marina, who persuaded him into learning this craftsmanship, as she has been in the folklore business for decades. He started studying the craft online and perfected it with the help of Slobodan Milosevic Beli, from whom he learned that for this craft it takes a lot of love, time, high quality leather and the right tools. Beside making opancis, Marina and Mica have started their own association ‘Folklorika’ which gathers approximately 100 members. That’s exactly for whom the first opanci were made. With this, the business they have started together has came full circle.
"KO OPANAK OBUJE, NOGU SVOJU MILUJE."
Opanci are made out of strong, high quality bovine leather. They’re sewed in and entwined with durable goat leather. When making these traditional shoes we use wooden molds ranging in sizes from 20 to 49. We also use calf leather to make traditional Backa slippers. Further more, in our supply you can find souvenirs such as opanci keychains.
