The commercial linen used on Romanian costumes at the beginning of the 20th century was a sign of the social status because it was imported and expensive. The peasants, the ordinary people from Romania worn before WWI and WWII only clothes hand made on hand loomed in households linen.



The blouse is originated from Banat folkloric region of Romania and it is worn of the ethnic Croatians living here.
