First information about crafts in Sarajevo appeared less than three decades after its foundation, and they refer to the year 1489. Through history the number of crafts climbed to 80. Today in Old Town Sarajevo-Baščaršija streets bear the names of old crafts, many of which no longer exist.
Old crafts Virtual Museum project aims to introduce the users with Baščaršija crafts tradition and to contribute to preservation of the memory on crafts which disappeared. In this version of the project, the users will find out the details about crafts facing extinction: četkar (brush maker), kazaz (tailor decorater) and bozadžija (maker of drink called boza) through Virtual Reality application. They can also learn about the historical development of crafts in Sarajevo and get to know meanings of craft names that are not familiar any more to the general public.
The music for Old crafts Virtual Museum application was composed by the author Emir Bukovica. Under BUKOWSKEE label Emir published his song “Mahala zna”, as support to the visibility of the project. (Mahala is a street in old towns in Bosnia, sometimes also an expression for a local neighborhood community). For this song DIGI.BA produced, aside of the standard HD format, a VR music video, the first of this kind in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was another pioneer contribution to introducing IT technologies in the music and video production.
