Romanian peasant costume from Transylvania, Sibiu - Valcea, antique ethnic outfit size M - L
Gorgeous Romanian costume from Transylvania, Sibiu - Valcea area containing e pieces: hand embroidered blouse, white skirt and pair of antique aprons.



A genuine hallmark of the shepherds in Carpathian Mountains, in between Sibiu and Valcea counties, the costume of this area has a well defined personality through the black and white contrast which the basic pieces display. The beauty and the elegance of the apparel aroused the admiration of the intelligentsia, who adopted this costume as as a national emblem at the beginning of the 20th century.



1. The female traditional blouse decorated with " umeras " and " sire "on the sleeve is thought to have originated in this area. This variant has the sleeve ending in " fodra " (flounce) and an ornament with " ciocanele ", black stripes made of black cloth sewn on the blouse.
