White cotton baby's vest made in Slovenia in 1941 by Ivanka Bobek for her first born son. Ivanka brought this vest along with several items from her mother's glory box and a net scarf with her when she migrated to Australia in 1951, via Displaced Persons Camps in Europe. Each of the items Ivanka brought with her were handcrafted using traditional techniques, which she maintains.
