Handmade lace

Croatian lace, a cultural heritage protected by UNESCO since 2009, has become renowned for its unique designs and patterns. Today, the Adriatic islands of Pag and Hvar are considered to be the centres of lace weaving. The islanders of Pag weave jewellery in the form of a spider's web with geometric motifs, meanwhile the island of Hvar has a unique process of making ornaments, because they are woven only from agave leaves, which are collected on the island and then specially processed to make a thin fabric.

Paški sir

Paški sir is a hard cheese made from sheep's milk and olive oil. It originates and is produced on the island of Pag and is considered the national product of Croatia. The cheese itself has a wonderful aroma, resulting from the taste of the milk itself and the addition of a large number of aromatic herbs such as sage or rosemary.
