The weaving cooperative Dunav was first established in November 1951. Over the course of its existence, the name and organization of the enterprise have been changed many times. Eventually, it was named Novitet-Dunav - silk damask weaving mill.

“The weaving trade, or weaving craft, originates from Czech Republic and Hungary where it was brought from to Serbia as early as at the end of XIX century together with the equipment, e.g. looms. Preserving this sort of manufacture work, we remained the only one and unmatched in Serbia and Montenegro, and, we can freely say, in the whole Europe.

Our products are exclusively manufactured on manual looms with jacquard type of weaving and punched cards that date back to 1871. Twenty three weavers work on eighteen wooden looms,” states Novitet-Dunav on its website.

The company’s production program involves only manually woven silk damask - tablecloths, upper tablecloths, napkins and bed linen. Each manufactured product is a unique item and signifies style and a good sense of harmony and beauty.
