‘Boutique Kosovo’ on The Old High Street, housed a rare and eclectic collection of Kosovan folkloric and ritual clothes collected by Shkololli over a two-year period of travelling to the furthest reaches of Kosovo. These garments, now almost obsolete, were worn at special occasions like births, marriages and funerals, and are intricately connected to Kosovan national identity. A limited edition of specially made traditional shirts could be bought at the Boutique.

Awards: DAAD Fellowship in Berlin (2008/09) and the Premio Michetti Prize of Fondazion Michetti di Francavilla al Mare (2001)
